Recognising the important work already undertaken by your council in climate and energy programs, ICLEI welcomes your Council to become part of the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy which gives the opportunity for councils to report on local climate action formally.
This international coalition of cities, towns and regions aims to demonstrate and share their ambitious intention to become low carbon, encouraging renewable energy and energy efficiency, while being better adapted to climate change and importantly more climate resilient.
Many communities are also aware of the commitments made by the National Governments as part of the Paris Agreement and wish to play their part, and some communities are encouraging local councils to make renewed efforts that reflect local and global contribution.
With the merging of the international Compact of Mayors and the EU based Covenant of Mayors over 7,100 committed cities from 119 countries will form the largest global network of councils leading actions to respond to climate change. The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy was formally launched on 1 January 2017.
