Today, CDP launched its annual InFocus Reports, which catalogue city climate actions around the world. This year, five C40 cities are being recognized in the reports for their leadership in climate change disclosure. These cities have received the highest scores in their regions for the quality and detail of their reported climate related-data.
Today, C40 announced the 35 finalists competing in ten urban climate action categories for the fourth-annual C40 Cities Awards, sponsored by Bloomberg Philanthropies and BYD. The winners will be announced on December 1, 2016, at a ceremony in Mexico City, held alongside the sixth biennial C40 Mayors Summit.
This week, the City of Sydney agreed on ambitious new targets for 50 per cent of electricity used in the local area to come from renewable energy by 2030, and for net zero emissions by 2050. We have already committed to our long-term vision, Sustainable Sydney 2030, a program to take urgent climate action and reduce emissions by 70 per cent by 2030.
For a number of years, a group of C40 cities active in the Green Growth Network have been working to understand the size and nature of their green economies. This information - including economic value, number of jobs, number of companies, specialist sectors, exports, and green growth potential - is crucial to help cities identify where the most effective interventions can be made and help make the case for further sustainable policies that help grow the green economy.
At the start of December 2015, all eyes were on Paris for the COP21 climate negotiations, regarded by many as a pivotal moment in determining global climate action. C40 was fortunate to be there on the ground to help showcase innovative and effective climate actions taking place in the world’s cities. Through a series of fantastic events at Paris City Hall, Le Bourget and other iconic locations around the city, mayors from around the world gathered to celebrate successful projects and plans, share their stories and knowledge, voice their ideas, and establish opportunities for action over the next 5 years and beyond.
The City of Sydney has been carbon neutral since 2008. Amidst strong economic growth, emissions across our Local Government Area have fallen 12 per cent since 2006 and we have reduced emissions in our own buildings and operations by over 23 per cent.
