 Songdo has been designed with sensors to monitor temperature,​ energy use and traffic flow. These sensors can alert to personal when bus is due and to local authority about any problem. A lot of these innovations are designed with the environment in mind - charging stations for electric cars, for example, or a water-recycling system that prevents clean drinking water being used to flush office toilets.The waste disposal system is also impressive because there are no rubbish trucks trawling the streets or vast bins dotted around blocks of flats. Instead, all household waste is sucked directly from individual kitchens through a vast underground network of tunnels, to waste processing centres, where it's automatically sorted, deodorised and treated to be kinder to the environment. In future, some of this household waste will be used to produce renewable energy. ​ Songdo has been designed with sensors to monitor temperature,​ energy use and traffic flow.

 This is quite an opinion based question. However, it’s interesting to know how people from developing or developed countries think of the sustainability,​ how their countries should be responsible of the environmental issues or how much their countries have been doing for sustainability so far.  This is quite an opinion based question.
