As an international alliance of cities and local governments, the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy envisions a world where mayors and local governments, in alliance with partners, accelerate ambitious, measurable climate and energy initiatives that lead to inclusive, low-emission and climate resilient futures in accord with the Paris Agreement objectives.

The Covenant serves cities and local governments, empowering them to set ambitious emissions reduction targets that are measurable and supported by action in their communities. As more and more cities and local governments are heeding the global call to action, their response could not be more urgent as nations begin working towards meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement.
