Cities are leading the way!


.

Founded in 2005, 96 cities around the world - representing 25% of the global economy / 1/12 of the population - joined force to create the "C40", pledging to reduce their environmental impact. In October, the C40 announced that now 30 cities have already managed to pass peak emissions. This means that some of the world's largest cities have reduced their emissions by at least 10%.

.

On average, these cities have reduced overall emissions by 22%. One stand out city is Copenhagen which, with a dedication to finding alternative heating sources and expanding bike paths and public transit, has reduced emissions by 61% since 1991! Other more megacities like London have still managed to get up to almost 30% reduction, with an innovative congestion charging scheme, reducing vehicle numbers in the central business district by over 70,000 per day, cutting carbon emissions in the central London by 15% since 2003 when it was introduced.

Go Mayors, you can do it!
