The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (GCoM) is an international alliance of cities and local governments with a shared vision to promote and support voluntary action to combat climate change and move towards an inclusive, just, low-emissions, and resilient society.

In the US, GCoM receives financing from the European Union and is implemented by a collaboration between ICLEI USACDPUSDN, and C40. Together, we can further advance local climate action in the US, adding value, opportunities, and streamlined support for members.

The GCoM unites more than 13,200 cities in over 140 countries worldwide, forging an unprecedented alliance. As part of it, committed towns have access to capacity building and training for mayors and local technical teams, contributing to the international climate dialogue and generating lasting impact in their territories.

We recognize that local governments are key to effective climate action and work to organize and mobilize their efforts for a globally-coherent and regionally-tailored climate solution.

Our mission in the USA and in the world is clear: mitigate climate change, adapt to its challenges, and ensure universal access to safe, affordable, and sustainable energy.

The commitment made at the historic 2015 Paris Conference seeks to reduce emissions, foster adaptation, promote cooperation and technology transfer between countries.

Join the largest alliance of cities committed to fighting climate change and let’s forge together a safer and more sustainable future for the US and the world.
