Covenant of Mayors Ceremony: Towards a fairer, climate-neutral Europe for all

In April 2021, the Covenant of Mayors initiative has entered a new phase, officially launching its renewed ambition of a fairer and climate-neutral Europe. Signatories now commit to reaching climate neutrality by 2050, implementing adaptation to climate change measures and alleviating energy poverty through a just transition. They also commit to engaging their citizens, businesses and local stakeholders in the transition.

The online Covenant of Mayors Ceremony celebrated this new phase, the achievements of the Community, and debated how to commit, engage, act and network towards a fairer and climate-neutral Europe. The European Commissioner for Energy Mrs Kadri Simson and the Executive Vice-President for the European Green Deal Frans Timmermans joined mayors, local leaders, Presidents of Regions, and representatives from municipalities of all sizes, in this celebration.
