Carbonn Cities Climate Registry

At the World Mayors Summit on Climate in Mexico City on 21 November 2010, two groundbreaking initiatives were launched: Global Cities Covenant on Climate – “the Mexico City Pact”, and the carbonn® Cities Climate Registry (cCCR) as the global mechanism for reporting local climate information.

The carbonn Cities Climate Registry (cCCR) is a global mechanism that encourages local governments to regularly and publicly report on their greenhouse gas reduction commitments, GHG emissions inventories and climate mitigation/adaptation actions. The cCCR was developed by local governments for local governments.The cCCR enables cities and local governments to publicly register their greenhouse gas reduction commitments, report performance and showcase actions.

The cCCR ensures that local climate action is measurable, reportable and verifiable, and that data are consistent with the standards of the global climate regime.

The cCCR supports the global credibility of local climate action and ensures transparency, accountability and comparability.

Global Cities’ Covenant on Climate: The Mexico City Pact

By signing the Pact, Mayors and local authority representatives commit to:

  1. Reduce their local greenhouse gas emissions voluntarily
  2. Adopt and implement local climate mitigation measures designed to achieve their voluntary reduction target
  3. Develop local adaptation strategies to address the local impact of climate change
  4. Register their emission inventories, commitments, climate mitigation and adaptation measures and actions in a measurable, reportable and verifiable (MRV) manner
  5. Seek the creation of mechanisms that allow direct access to international funding for local climate actions
  6. Establish the Mexico City Pact Secretariat
  7. Promote the involvement of civil society in the fight against climate change
  8. Advocate and seek partnerships with multilateral institutions and national governments on our local climate actions
  9. Promote partnerships and city-to-city cooperation
  10. Spread the message of the Mexico City Pact

Atlantic Cities like Brest Métropole Océane, Nantes Métropole and Lisbon are already part of it.

Climate Change Champions for Wales

A Climate Change Champion spreads the word about how people can take simple steps to reduce their carbon footprints. They use their influence to persuade friends, families and the wider community to do their bit to tackle climate change.
Each year, champions are encouraged to speak to lots of people and groups throughout Wales about the small things that everyone can all do to reduce our carbon footprint.
They all regularly attend events, talk to the media and write columns in their local newspapers where they talk about what they’ve been doing to raise awareness of things we can do to reduce climate change.
