Five C40 cities recognized for leadership in reporting climate data

Since 2011, C40 cities have been leading the way in demonstrating their ongoing commitment to tackling climate change and reducing climate risks by publicly disclosing their efforts via the CDP reporting platform.

Today, CDP launched its annual InFocus Reports, which catalogue city climate actions around the world. This year, five C40 cities are being recognized in the reports for their leadership in climate change disclosure. These cities have received the highest scores in their regions for the quality and detail of their reported climate related-data. C40 congratulates the cities of:

  • Cape Town, South Africa
  • Mexico City, Mexico
  • Paris, France
  • Sydney, Australia
  • Vancouver, Canada

C40 cities are at the forefront of a growing group of cities and local governments from across the world reporting to the CDP platform. In fact, in 2016, 533 cities reported to CDP, with over 200 cities doing so for the first time.

Cities are setting ambitious targets, making their data publicly available and being transparent about their progress toward their climate goals. You can view CDP’s cities data on their Open Data Portal.
