European mayors sign on a more active climate policy in Europe

On May 22, 2008 the Mayors of Delft (Netherlands), Grenoble (France), Växjö (Sweden) with the consent of the Mayors of Kaunas (Lithuania), Miskolc (Hungary) and Vastseliina (Estonia) signed the Grenoble Declaration and thus committed to achieve and even go beyond the European Union target.

The Mayors urge the European Union to take action on a more active climate policy.

The cities want the European Union to:

  • strongly emphasise the more efficient use of currently-used energy sources and encourage the extensive production of renewable energy,
  • subscribe to the principle of a climate tax on energy,
  • invest in and stimulate sustainable energy measures at local level using the funds generated from above mentioned point,
  • motivate actors in the construction and building management sector to apply energy efficient measures in the whole building process, from a sustainable life cycle perspective.
