Illustration Covenant Supporters

Covenant Supporters are defined as not-for-profit organisations (associations of local and regional authorities, networks, thematic agencies …) with the capacity to promote the Covenant of Mayors and to mobilise and support their members and/or local authorities to reach the Covenant of Mayors’ objectives.

They take action on their territories and areas of expertise (e.g. energy, environment, water, air), and at different levels of governance (e.g. European, national, and regional/local) to promote the Covenant of Mayors initiative and support the commitments of their signatories. With expert knowledge of the regulatory, legislative and financial framework under which they operate - be it at the local/regional, national or European level – Covenant Supporters are ideally placed to provide tailored advice to signatories and identify synergies with existing initiatives.

carbonn Climate Registry (cCR)
Category: Other
Description: The carbonn Climate Registry (cCR) is the world´s leading reporting platform to enhance transparency, accountability and credibility of climate action of local and subnational governments. The cCR is a global mechanism developed for local governments by local governments. It enables them to publicly and regularly report their local climate action developments: - greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction commitments, - emissions inventories - climate mitigation / adaptation actions Reported results are used in the Local Government Climate Roadmap, playing a key role in the advocacy of local governments in the global climate negotiations. The Annual Reports of cCR (2011, 2012, 2013) were presented and very effectively used at the United Nations Climate Conferences in Durban (COP 17), Doha (COP 18) and Warsaw (COP 19). The cCR supports the global credibility of local climate action and ensures transparency, accountability and comparability. The aim is to improve and ensure data are consistent with the standards of the global climate regime. Launched at the World Mayors Summit on Climate in Mexico City on 21 November 2010 under the name carbonn Climate Registry (cCCR), as the global response of local governments to measurable, reportable and verifiable (MRV) climate action, cCR has been designated as the central repository of the Compact of Mayors launched at the Climate Summit 2014.
