Covenant of Mayors

The Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy brings together local and regional authorities who voluntarily commit to implementing the EU’s climate and energy objectives on their territory.

The initiative was launched by the European Commission in 2008 and now counts over 11,000 signatories representing 341 million citizens. Since 2015, signatories pledge to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 40% by 2030 and to adopt an integrated approach to tackling mitigation and adaptation to climate change.

Eurocities is part of the Covenant of Mayors Office, a group of networks of local and regional authorities responsible for the daily administration of the initiative, together with Energy Cities, Climate Alliance, the European Federation of Agencies and Regions for Energy and the Environment (FEDARENE), and the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR).
