Illustration As a Network of Local Authorities

Networks and associations of local authorities are major catalysts of the Covenant of Mayors growth and promotion. Their extensive knowledge of the local and national contexts makes them indispensable intermediaries between the Covenant of Mayors Office and signatories.

Who is eligible?

Networks and associations of local and regional authorities can join as Covenant Supporters. As such, they notably pledge to promote the Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy among their members, guide them through the Covenant process and facilitate exchanges of experience.

Should you require further clarifications, please contact the Covenant Supporters Helpdesk here.

What are the commitments?

  • Promote the Covenant of Mayors initiative, mobilising existing and potential signatories
  • Support and advise Covenant of Mayors signatories
  • Support exchanges and share knowledge, experiences, best practices, tools or resources relevant to Covenant signatories

  • Participate in Covenant of Mayors activities
  • Report regularly, and not less than every two years, to the Covenant of Mayors Office on the activities carried out in the framework of the initiative.
