Covenant of Mayors Office
63-67 Rue d’Arlon
The European Commission’s Covenant of Mayors held its first political board meeting on Friday 10 February 2017, in the presence of European Commission Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič, former UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres, Member of the European Parliament Claude Turmes and European Committee of the Regions Vice-President Karl-Heinz Lambertz, at the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) in Brussels.
Initially composed of 7 mayors and local elected representatives, the European Covenant of Mayors Board will give local and regional leaders the opportunity to play a greater role in shaping and further guiding the initiative. Board members will also campaign for enabling frameworks for local climate and energy action from the national and European level, raising awareness about local needs amongst European and national decision makers.
This Board of Mayors aims to discuss the strategic orientations of the initiative, to ensure it best fits cities’ needs and is further tailored to their expectations and to foster the dialogue between the European Covenant Community and the EU institutions.
The European Covenant of Mayors Board is also linked to the board of the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy, the world’s largest coalition of cities and local governments leading the fight against climate change. The Global Covenant of Mayors Board is chaired by European Commission Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič, Michael Bloomberg and former UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres, and steered by 10 mayors from all over the world.
