Climate Alliance members meet on eve of Covenant of Mayors cemerony
On 19 February 2018, members and partner organisations of the Climate Alliance city network gathered in Brussels to exchange experiences and take stock of network expectations for 2018. The event took place on the eve of the annual Covenant of Mayors signatory ceremony marking the initiative’s tenth anniversary. Climate Alliance has helped run the European Commission led Covenant of Mayors since its birth and thus also helped shape the way in which the EU cooperates with local authorities on climate and energy matters. The network’s mark is especially evident in the initiative’s approach to topics such CO2 monitoring, adaptation to climate change and climate partnerships. Many Climate Alliance members are also Covenant of Mayors signatories, committing them to EU climate and energy targets in addition to Climate Alliance’s even more ambitious targets.
