The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy
The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy (GCoM) serves cities and local governments by mobilizing and supporting ambitious, measurable and planned climate and energy action in their communities. It is the broadest global alliance committed to climate leadership, involving more than 9,000 cities and local governments.
Local, regional and global city networks are core partners, serving as the primary support for participating cities and local governments. As a member of the Founders Council, ICLEI actively engages in GCoM strategic initiatives and provides technical support for around 400 committed cites and local governments worldwide.
Focusing on three pillars: climate change mitigation, adaptation and increased access to secure, affordable and sustainable energy, the GCoM supports implementation of ambitious, measurable and locally relevant solutions, captured through climate action plans developed, implemented and monitored by cities and local governments. Plans, targets and achievements are reported and publicly available on GCoM reporting platforms, such as carbonn Climate Registry (cCR).
