Cities Almost Double Climate Actions Over 2 Years, C40 Says

The world’s 63 biggest cities have almost doubled the activities they undertake to reduce climate change since 2011, according to a report from the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group.

“Mayors have real power to cut emissions and improve climate resilience, and they are taking action,” C40 chairman, Rio de Janeiro Mayor Eduardo Paes, said at the release of the report at the group’s Mayors Summit in Johannesburg today. “C40’s networks and efforts on measurement and reporting are accelerating city-led action at a transformative scale around the world.”
