A green and just transition champions inclusivity and equity, resilient communities, sustainable development and the urgent need for quality green jobs for all.
C40’s diplomacy and advocacy work supports mayors and cities to engage in global, regional and national political discussions with the aim of enhancing their climate leadership, championing ambitious and equitable climate action and removing barriers to city-level action – all in the spirit of working towards a Global Green New Deal.
Cities play a powerful role in driving investment that can shape the transition to a greener economy and more equitable society. C40 supports cities to divest their pensions and investments from fossil fuels, shift towards climate solutions and advocate for investments in the future we want.
Globally, the business community and private sector have a major role to play in addressing the climate crisis. Recognising this, C40 works to connect cities with the private sector and drive innovation, maximising the opportunity of joint climate action around the world.
