The Covenant of Mayors
The Covenant of Mayors is the main European movement involving local and regional authorities, which are committed to increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources in their areas. With their commitment, the signatories of the Pact intend to achieve and exceed the European Union target of reducing CO2 emissions by 20% by 2020.
The participating Local Government Organizations (OTAs – municipalities) are officially committed to reducing CO2 emissions by implementing local strategies in favor of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources, which create permanent jobs and increase the quality of life of citizens. The “Covenant of Mayors” is oriented towards achieving results, with emphasis on specific projects and measurable results.
