Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy - Europe

Together towards sustainable, climate-resilient and vibrant cities.

#TogetherTowards2030 @eumayors

Cities and towns gathered around one shared ambition

The Covenant of Mayors is the largest movement of cities committed to reach the EU’s climate and energy targets.

It gathers local governments all of sizes and from all countries around three main objectives:

  1. reducing CO2 emissions,
  2. increasing their resilicence to climate change,
  3. ensuring access to sustainable, secrure and affordable energy to all.

Created in 2008, following the adoption of the 2020 EU Climate and Energy Package, this movement supported by the European Commission now counts over 8,800 signatories. In Europe, more than 230 million invididuals live in a city which is part of the Covenant of Mayors.

Supported in their commitment by a wide diversity of players

Signatory local governments have committed to submit, within two years after formal approval by the local council, a Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SECAP) which specifies the actions they will undertake to reach their objectives. The local governments have then to report on their progress every two year.

Thanks to the Covenant of Mayors, signatories benefit not only from the experience of thousands of other cities but also from a community of stakeholders that are supporting them in designing and delivering their energy and climate actions. Provinces, regions, energy agencies, associations... are to this purpose joining the movement as Coordinators or Supporters.

What is Energy Cities doing for the Covenant of Mayors?

Since the very beginning, Energy Cities has been leading the Covenant of Mayors - Europe Office.

Energy Cities also runs the Covenant of Mayors - Eastern Europe and Caucasus Office, supported by the Association "Energy Efficient Cities of Ukraine", Climate Alliance, NL Agency and the Regional Environmental Centre for Central Asia (CAREC).

Energy Cities is also one of the official Covenant of Mayors Supporters. As such, Energy Cities has been encouraging its member cities to join the movement and demonstrating their key role in reaching the EU energy and climate objectives.
