ACR+ member Lisbon received two distinctions at the “Green Awards – Visão+ Grupo Águas de Portugal”, which recognises people, companies and organizations that stand out in Portugal in the environmental area. The Lisbon City Council won the 1st prize in the Water and Sustainable Cities category with the project launched in 2020 “Lisbon Drinking Plants”. The pilot project ended in 2021, with the installation of 30 drinking fountains in various parts of the capital. These are urban outdoor facilities that combine three functions: a traditional drinking fountain, a water dispenser for refilling reusable personal water bottles, and an animal feeder. The second phase, which includes the installation of a further 170 drinking fountains, began in the same year and is scheduled for completion in early 2023. Moreover, the city received an honourable mention to the sustainable irrigation project for Lisbon's parks and gardens.
