JOIN - As a signatory
Local governments play a leading role in climate change mitigation and adaptation. Participation in the Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy Europe supports them in this endeavour, by providing them the recognition, resources and networking opportunities necessary to take their energy and climate commitments to the next level.
Who is eligible
The Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy is open to all local authorities democratically constituted with/by elected representatives, whatever their size and whatever the stage of implementation of their energy and climate policies.
Neighbouring small and medium-sized local authorities can also, under certain conditions, decide to join as a group of signatories and submit a joint Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan, either committing individually (option 1) or collectively (option 2) Further information is available here.
How to join
To join the ever-growing movement, local authorities should undertake the following process:
Present the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy initiative to your local / municipal council. In order to ease the council’s discussions, you can download the Commitment document here.
Once an official resolution has been adopted by the council, mandate the mayor - or equivalent representative of the council - to sign the Covenant Commitment document.
After signature, complete your information online and upload the duly signed Commitment document. Please take note of the next steps, outlined in the Annex to the Commitment document and in the FAQs.
