It was announced on Friday that Copenhagen had beaten Bristol and Frankfurt into runners up spots in the European Green Capital 2014 competition.
Bristol City Council leader Simon Cook was philosphical saying;
“We are the only UK city to have ever reached the finals in this competition, and we have done so for the second time. This sends a clear message that we are a green city that is inspiring change across Europe.
“It provides us with a platform to market the city as a place to do green business and a great place for international tourists to visit.”
