CITIES AROUND THE WORLD ARE BUILDING A BRIGHTER FUTURE
Cities around the world are leading efforts to step up climate action ambition to meet Paris Agreement targets. Leadership from cities -- in partnership with states, regions and businesses -- was demonstrated at the Global Climate Action Summit in September 2019 where bold commitments to make buildings net zero carbon, reduce waste generation and shift to zero-emission transport were announced.
The C40 Net Zero Carbon Buildings, Advancing Towards Zero Waste, and Green & Healthy Streets Declaration not only demonstrate cities' commitments to slash emissions by 2030, but also to build thriving, healthy, and equitable communities. More cities will be joining these committed leaders and working with C40 to turn their pledges into action in coming years.
