Join the Top 10 Cities as a Leader in Local Climate Impact

Would you like to see how your city’s sustainability efforts compare to those of recognized global leaders in measuring and monitoring their local climate actions? If you agree that “measuring is the first step to managing”, check out C40’s In Focus reports, highlighting ten individual case studies about how each city perceives its climate risk, measures key climate change-related data, implements climate policies, and manages climate action. Congratulations to the three American cities – Philadelphia, San Francisco, and New York – that made the top 10 list, based on the quality of its local climate action reporting.

Learn more about how your city government can take an active climate leadership role by:  taking collective action to reduce carbon pollution, participating in voluntary climate change reporting, networking with other cities to benchmark progress and share best practices.

C40 Blog | February 25, 2015

What climate risks does the city of Venice face? What actions has Sydney undertaken to prepare for future heatwaves? What has Paris done to reduce its carbon footprint? The answers to these questions and more are now available in 10 In Focus City Reports that provide insight into how the world’s leading cities are becoming more sustainable.

Developed by AECOM, the In Focus City Reports feature the 10 cities whose climate action reporting was of the highest quality as submitted to C40’s official reporting partner, CDP Cities, in 2014. Five of the selected cities are C40 members:Johannesburg, Paris, Sydney, Venice and Yokohama.

C40 offers its cities tools and support to enable them to measure and monitor local climate actions. With support from Bloomberg Philanthropies, CDP Cities provides a global platform for cities to publicly disclose key climate data – and we’re proud that more than 90 percent of C40 members reported through this platform in 2014.

The 2015 CDP Cities reporting cycle will kick off today. Participation will be more important than ever, allowing cities to show the collective impact of local climate action on the Road to Paris.
