JOIN - As a supporter
Covenant Supporters are defined as not-for-profit organisations (associations of local and regional authorities, local and regional energy agencies, and organisations of the civil society) with the capacity to promote the Covenant of Mayors – Europe and to mobilise and support their members and/or local governments to reach the Covenant of Mayors - Europe’ objectives.
They take action on their territories and areas of expertise (e.g. energy, environment, water, air), and at different levels of governance (e.g. European, national, regional or local) to promote the Covenant of Mayors - Europe initiative and support their signatories. With expert knowledge of the regulatory, legislative and financial framework under which they operate - be it at the local, regional, national or European level – Covenant Supporters are ideally placed to provide tailored advice to signatories and identify synergies with existing initiatives.
