Four new Covenant of Mayors case studies featuring best practices in signatory cities are now available. Get inspired by some of the most advanced European cities taking part in the Covenant of Mayors initiative.
  • Since January 2013, Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is the largest city in the world to offer free public transport to its residents. The city has been able to attract 6,000 new residents with the initiative.
  • Burgas, Bulgaria’s fourth-largest city, is leading the way in South-Eastern Europe when it comes to developing an integrated transport system. In 2014 the city will launch a bus rapid transit line (BRT).
  • In Lithuania,Kaunas, has set clean energy production as a key priority to reach the Covenant of Mayors objectives. Nearly half of the electricity produced in the territory comes from renewable energy sources.
  • About to join the European Union, the Croatian town of Ivanić-Grad has been very successful at raising awareness about energy issues amongst residents. 300 citizens are actively involved in the ENGAGE campaign.
