The Czech Republic has doubled the amount of plastics being recycled in the space of less than a decade. According to the Eurostat statistics, Czechs are in fourth place in Europe in terms of overall recycling of packaging waste – and in second place when it comes to recycling plastic PET bottles. Prague is also well-known for the efficiency of its public transportation system. In 2010, FIA (Federation Internationale de l'Automobile) recognized it as the 4th best in Europe. In 2017, Arcadis placed the Prague transportation system on the 5th place in the Sustainable Cities Mobility Index. The city supports a wide range of different projects, such as for example “Čistou Stopou Prahou” (“Across Prague with a Clean Track” to encourage people to walk, use the public transportation or bike instead of commuting by car) or “Cyklisté vítáni” (“Bikers Welcome” - certification for hotels, restaurants, venues etc. that provides facilities for cyclists). In the field of transportation, the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan was accepted to solve the traffic problem as a whole. In 2018, Dutch holiday agency TravelBird published its Green Cities Index and ranked Prague as the world's greenest city. There is also a Green City Guide available for Prague visitors.
