Climate Change Mitigation

Climate change is one of the largest threats facing people and nature. Climate is basic to our life systems – yet through our actions, humanity is causing the climate to change dangerously. Cities have risen to the challenge and are setting some of the world’s most ambitious goals for reducing their impact on the climate.

Heeding the urgent warnings
Cities’ lead on climate mitigation has taken many forms; international networks of cities, focused on mitigating climate change, is one such form. The US Mayors’ Climate Protection Agreement, the EU’s Covenant of Mayors, the Climate Neutral Network, the carbonn Cities Climate Registry, and the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group all set higher goals than agreements between governments. Individual cities are also taking the lead with very ambitious targets like carbon neutrality before 2030 along with comprehensive action plans to reach the goals.
