Covenant of Mayors - 02.05.2016

​EU Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete invites mayors to join the new Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy
Following up on the historic international agreement on climate change reached last December in Paris, EU Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete addresses mayors in a letter that emphasizes cities’ crucial role in successfully implementing the energy transition.

In the letter sent on Thursday 28 April, Commissioner Arias Cañete thanks the cities that have already been taking climate and energy actions through the Covenant of Mayors and Mayors Adapt, two major initiatives now merged under the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy.

Acknowledging the “vital importance” of local and regional authorities in achieving the EU’s climate and energy targets, Commissioner Arias Cañete encourages them to step up their ambition and sign up to the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy. The Covenant, extended until 2030, now includes commitments from cities on both climate change mitigation and adaptation in line with a shared 2050 vision towards decarbonised and resilient territories with universal access to secure, clean and affordable energy.

With your commitment, Europe will be better prepared to make the transition to a sustainable low-carbon and climate-resilient society as well as in a position to turn this success story into a model which can be adopted in other regions of the world.” Commissioner Arias Canete.
