Inclusive climate action that benefits all city residents equitably

Climate change is unfair. It is created by the few and will hit the many hardest and strongest.

Mayors signing up to the C40 Equity Pledge commit to increasing action on:

  • Community-led development.
  • Inclusive climate action and infrastructure projects that achieve major environmental, health, social and economic benefits, especially in low-income and vulnerable communities.
  • Deliver bold climate action that benefits all residents equitably.

Equity Pledge signatories that are looking to share and learn from other cities about how to deliver equitable, just climate action can join the Inclusive Climate Action Forum.
