Climate Alliance

 The Climate Alliance of European Cities with Indigenous Rainforest Peoples is the European network of local authorities committed to the protection of the world’s climate. Member cities and municipalities commit to the ambitious target of reducing their CO2 emissions by 10 % every 5 years, which corresponds to a halving of emissions by 2030 from a 1990 baseline.

Founded in 1990, Climate Alliance represents around 1,600 local authorities in 20 European countries. The association’s European Secretariat, its Brussels Office and the National Coordination Offices foster the exchange of experiences, provide training and capacity building services, develop methods and tools for the setting-up, implementation and monitoring of local climate action plans and organise campaigns which allow local authorities to directly involve their citizens in concrete actions for a sustainable energy future.

Climate Alliance regularly evaluates the achievements of its members’ actions in terms of greenhouse gas emissions reduction and implemented measures, promotes them towards national governments and the European Union and formulates opinions to improve framework conditions for local action.

On 31 May 2015 the SEAP_Alps project will be finalized, and the partnership looks back to numerous fruitful results and good cooperation. The objective of the project was to promote energy planning at local level, boosting the capacity of project partners in supporting small and medium municipalities in the drafting of Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs).

Signatories of the Covenant of Mayors voluntarily commit to increasing energy efficiency and the use of sustainable energy sources in their municipality. More than 6000 local authorities are part of the European initiative. They do not only use the political signal strength at the European level, but also instruments free of charge to achieve their ambitious climate objectives.

Energy efficiency of public buildings contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions and is one the measures in the preparation of Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAP). In the framework of the project SEAP Alps the measures will be achieved together with local authorities, stakeholders and energy agencies. By 2020 municipalities will provide an enormous contribution to the reduction of CO2.
