The City Climate Movement

As we described in our November 2015 report The Urban Clean Energy Revolution, local governments are partnering deeply with other jurisdictions and networks to accelerate carbon reduction. Over the past decade, the number and scale of organizations helping cities to reduce their carbon footprints have expanded dramatically—including international initiatives such as the Compact of Mayors and the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance, and local efforts such as the King County-Cities Climate Collaboration and the San Diego Regional Climate Collaborative.
