C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group

C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group

C40 is a group of large cities committed to tackling climate change. Cities have a central role to play in tackling climate change. By fostering a sense of shared purpose, the C40 network offers cities an effective forum in which to work together, share information and demonstrate leadership.

Through effective partnership working with the Clinton Climate Initiative, the C40 helps cities reduce greenhouse gas emissions through a range of energy efficiency and clean energy programs.

History of the C40           

The C40 was formed In October 2005 when representatives of leading world cities met in London to discuss joining forces to tackle global warming and climate change. At the end of the conference, a communiqué was signed which recognised the need for cities to take action and to cooperate on reducing climate emissions.
