Who: The European Covenant of Mayors Office is managed by a consortium of networks of local and regional authorities, led by Energy Cities and Climate Alliance, composed of CEMR, EUROCITIES, Fedarene, and ICLEI Europe, on behalf of the European Commission’s Directorate General (DG) Energy and DG Climate Action
- Signatories endorse a shared vision for 2050: accelerating the decarbonization of their territories, strengthening their capacity to adapt to unavoidable climate change impacts, and allowing their citizens to access secure, sustainable and affordable energy.
- The initiative has now gathered more than 7,000 local and regional authorities all across Europe drawing on the strengths of a multi-stakeholder movement and the technical and methodological support offered by a dedicated office.
- This unique bottom-up movement leverages multi-level collaboration and its replicability has been proven with the extension and adaptation to other world regions leading to the launch of the Global Covenant of Mayors in 2016.
