The C40 Cities Bloomberg Philanthropies Awards 2017

December 5, 2017 301 East North Water Street Chicago, Illinois 60611

Throughout the world, mayors deliver important, impactful, and innovative policies and programmes that reduce carbon pollution and improve resilience. Since 2013, C40 has recognised more than 40 of the world’s boldest projects, highlighting the critical role cities play as a leading force for climate action.

Given the increasingly important role cities must play in driving climate action in the United States, the C40 Cities Bloomberg Philanthropies Awards 2017 will have a special focus on the leadership of US cities on the global stage. Each category will have a winner from an American city and a city from the rest of the world.

The winners will be announced in Chicago on 5 December at the North American Climate Summit
