In November 2019, Rotterdam delivered its own Climate Agreement, in line with Paris Agreement goals and in partnership with more than 100 companies and social organizations. Within 10 years, the city aims to reduce CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent.
The City-Business Climate Alliance (CBCA) has officially launched - and we’re calling on cities to join. The CBCA is a joint initiative of C40 Cities, CDP and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) designed to accelerate climate action through city-business collaboration.
In the wake of the UN Secretary-General's Climate Action Summit, cities led by Mayor of Paris & Chair of C40 Cities, Anne Hidalgo and Lord Mayor of Copenhagen & Host of C40 World Mayors Summit, Frank Jensen, urge all national governments to join them and act on climate.
Our shared planet is facing a climate emergency. The science is clear that, without urgent action, sea levels will rise further, extreme temperatures will become the norm and climate-related disasters will inflict even greater damage. We are making historic investments to prepare and adapt our cities to the inevitable consequences of emissions already released into the atmosphere.
