Editor’s Note: 2015 marks C40’s 10-year anniversary. To celebrate our 10 Years of Results, we are featuring the voices of C40 principals, partners and other thought leaders throughout the year.
World Resources Institute President & CEO Andrew Steer congratulates C40 on 10 years of results. World Resources Institute has been a knowledge partner with C40 for many years. Notably, the two organisations worked together to help establish the Global Protocol for Community-Scale greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories (GPC), the gold standard for emissions measurement used in the Compact of Mayors. C40 and World Resources Institute look forward to continuing their work together to further city climate action on the Road to Paris and beyond.
“What a difference C40 has made in just 10 short years. Thanks to you, major cities are now recognized as the key players in the 21st century global climate change agenda. Mayors are now on the global stage as powerful advocates for resilient, low-carbon development…By this kind of leadership, major cities are thus influencing ambitious, transparent and credible targets at the national and even at the global levels.”
Check out a video interview with Andrew Steer at the C40 Mayors Summit in Johannesburg in February 2014.
