At the global forefront, the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy unites more than 13,200 cities in over 144 countries, forging an unprecedented alliance. As part of the alliance, committed cities have access to capacity building and training for mayors and local technical teams, also contributing to the international climate dialogue and generating lasting impact in their territories.

The mission is clear: to mitigate climate change, adapt to its challenges and ensure universal access to safe and sustainable energy. In Canada, this commitment made at the historic 2015 Paris Conference not only seeks to reduce emissions and foster adaptation, but also to promote cooperation between countries and technology transfer.

The GCoM is funded and supported by the European Union in Canada, an institution that plays a key role in supporting the GCoM with its technical and financial commitment; and as a collaboration between the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, ICLEI Canada, the Global Covenant of Mayors Secretariat and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). Join the largest alliance of cities committed to fighting climate change. Let’s forge together a safer and more sustainable future, not only for Canada, but for the entire world.
