Climate Alliance is a non-profit association uniting local authorities and indigenous rainforest peoples in their efforts to take action on global heating. With nearly 2,000 members spread across more than 25 European countries, Climate Alliance is Europe's largest city network dedicated to comprehensive and equitable climate action. Each member city, town and district has committed itself to continually cut greenhouse gas emissions, aiming for a 95% reduction by 2050 (as compared to 1990 levels) in line with IPCC recommendations. Recognising the impact our lifestyles can have on the world's most vulnerable people and places, Climate Alliance pairs local action with global responsibility. The network runs awareness raising campaigns, develops tools for climate action planning and fosters cooperation with indigenous peoples. Additional work goes into the management of EU-funded projects as well as EU flagship initiatives such as the Covenant of Mayors – Europe, communication and policy work.

The Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy - Europe brings together local authorities voluntarily committed to meeting or even exceeding the EU climate and energy objectives. Since its launch in 2008, the initiative has mobilised over 10,500 local authorities in Europe, covering roughly one third of the EU population. Signatory cities pledge action to support the EU in reaching carbon neutrality by 2050. They commit to delivering actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the given territory, increase resilience and prepare for the adverse impacts of climate change, and tackle energy poverty to ensure a just transition towards climate neutrality.
