In this paper, we explore some promising Smart Sustainable City initiatives and solutions in Amsterdam, Barce-lona, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai and Vienna, with a focus on environmental aspects. These initiatives and solutions include implementations of smart sustainable city technologies, and mu-nicipal support for such implementations. We analyse these initi-atives and solutions with respect to their potential for replacing or intensifying products/spaces/travels/transports, leaning pro-cesses and activities, or informing city inhabitants or visitors of better choices from an environmental perspective, as well as their connection with a number of smart city challenges. We also dis-cuss some of the problems we have found in these initiatives and solutions, especially regarding risks of rebound effects. Finally, we formulate three lessons for smart sustainable city implemen-tation.
