Year in Review: Global C40 Mayors Share Their Success Stories

This year, a number of C40 Mayors shared their voices here on the C40 blog and we wanted to share with everyone once again – all in one place. 

  • The year began with a post by Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, when his city became the second in Canada (after Toronto) to join C40 as a member.
  • In May, Rio de Janeiro Mayor Eduardo Paes – who wasrecently elected as the new C40 Chair – wrote a postabout the Hybrid and Electric Bus Test Program , an initiative being rolled out to make Latin America’s public transport more sustainable.
  • Over the summer, then-Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa wrote about an innovative program the city is rolling out to save energy and money by replacing incandescent bulbs with LED in streetlights, and Houston Mayor Annise Parker shared news of Houston’s new role as a C40 Steering Committee member.
  • In October, we featured a post by San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee that detailed the many positive benefits of the city’s new Bay Area Bike Share. 
  • The same month, Copenhagen hosted the second C40 Green Growth Network Workshop, and Lord Mayor Frank Jenson wrote a post in advance of the event.
  • Lord Mayor Robert Doyle wrote on Melbourne winning the City Climate Leadership Award in the Energy Efficient Built Environment category.
  • Lord Mayor Frank Jensen on Copenhagen winning the City Climate Leadership Award in the Carbon Measurement & Planning category.
  • Mayor Hep Monatzeder on Munich winning the City Climate Leadership Award in the Green Energy category.
  • Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera Espinosa on Mexico City winning the Air Quality category.

We are pleased we have been able to help C40 Mayors share their cities’ stories with our growing and dedicated readership, and we look forward to bringing you more Mayors Voices in 2014.
