Covenant of Mayors - General information

What is the Covenant of Mayors?

The Covenant of Mayors is the first and most ambitious European Union initiative launched by the European Commission directly targeting local authorities and their citizens to take the lead in the fight against global climate change. Since 2008, the Covenant of Mayors has developed into the leading movement for local authorities ready to step up their ambitions on sustainable energy and climate change . By joining the Covenant of Mayors, a local authority voluntarily commits to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving climate resilience through the implementation of a Sustainable Energy (and Climate) Action Plan.
