40 European cities committed to Covenant of Mayors’ new objectives
Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy had launched an initiative in order to establish new objectives in line with EU targets. To reduce CO2 levels, or GHG when possible, by 40% by 2030 and to increase resilience by adapting to climate change impacts were some of their priorities. Nowadays, local authorities form 40 European cities have already signed their commitment with these new objectives.
The Belgian town of Liège is amongst these pioneer cities and its objective is to develop a Sustainable Energy & Climate Action Plan (SECAP) structured on the same principles in which its SEAP is based on. Carrying out modifications in the transport and mobility policy, developing better understanding on the evolution of the energy and climate impacts of the city and backing citizens’ initiatives to tackle climate change are some of the aspects in which Liège authorities want to move forward.
On the other hand, and thanks to the Regional Air & Climate Agency (Wallonia), Liège authorities have already begun to indentify the policies that need to be modify or strengthened.
