Press Release: C40 Announces New Guidelines for Membership Categories

NEW YORK, NY (October 3, 2012) – Today, the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40) announced three newly defined categories of membership for the network.

"Cities are the centers of action around the world. They are continuing to make more progress in combating climate change than any other level of government and as our organization continues to grow in size and stature, the time has come to provide clear definitions around membership requirements, services and benefits to ensure the transparency of our processes," said C40 Chairman and New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. "Coupled with existing participation standards, these new categories clarify C40 membership classification and set the appropriate expectations for cities that want to join C40."
