10 years of energy and climate achievements

By 2020, the signatory cities of the Covenant of mayors will have in average reduced their CO2 emissions by 27%, decreased energy use by 20%, and increased local energy production by 90%*.

All over Europe, mayors have been taking bold measures to offer their citizens a healthy environment, green jobs, and a high quality of life. Each new commitment, new action plan and new measure implemented at local level is a step forward and an opportunity for bringing better quality of life and green growth in your municipalities. The European Commission accompanies your efforts through a series of initiatives and actions: a one-stop-shop for cities on financing opportunities, new accounting rules on energy efficiency investments, the smart financing for smart buildings initiative, the Covenant of Mayors Office.

Join us on 22 February in Brussels to make our common vision of sustainable, resilient and vibrant cities come true!

Take part in the discussion on Twitter with #eumayors2018.
