The EU Covenant of Mayors Office wishes a very Happy New Year to the Covenant of Mayors Community and all those supporting the movement. Your commitment is key to offer us all the opportunity to live in sustainable, climate-resilient and vibrant cities!
2018 was full of challenges, and full of successes. In the face of natural disasters and social crises, we've seen you, at local level, take action with determination and creativity. You are now 8,800+ local governments in the Covenant of Mayors movement in Europe, willing and able to improve the lives of over 230 million citizens.
Together, you have already reached a 23% reduction in CO2 emissions and reported over 233,000 mitigation and adaptation actions. In 2019, the EU Covenant of Mayors Office will continue supporting you, to do even better!
on behalf of the whole Covenant of Mayors - Europe team.
