Covenant Supporters

What is the role of Covenant Supporters?

Having expert knowledge of the regulatory, legislative and financial framework under which they operate, Covenant Supporters are ideally placed to provide tailored advice to signatories and identify synergies with existing initiatives. They can also provide technical expertise to Covenant signatories.

Tasks to be undertaken by a Covenant Supporter include:

  • Promote the Covenant of Mayors initiative, mobilising existing and potential signatories (adaptation of Covenant promotional materials to the national or regional context, inform about it through newsletters, website, workshops, events)
  • Support and advise Covenant of Mayors signatories
  • Support exchanges and share knowledge, experiences, best practices, tools or resources relevant to Covenant signatories 
  • Work in Partnership with other Covenant Supporters and National/Territorial Coordinators, Signatories and stakeholders involved in the Covenant of Mayors-related policies to foster joint action and promote a coordinated approach
  • Better accompany their activities of own members and/or local authorities on sustainable energy and adaptation to climate change
  • Participate in Covenant of Mayors activities, and help identify relevant events where the Covenant of Mayors could be promoted
  • 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, and participate in the strategic implementation of the Covenant.

Covenant Supporters’ participation in the initiative will be suspended by the Covenant of Mayors Office in case of non-compliance with the above-mentioned commitments.
