Covenant Group of Practitioners: Local climate & energy experts and EU Commission discuss next steps for the initiative
12 januari 2018 - 12:29

On the 14th of December 2017, the Covenant of Mayors Group of Practitioners met with representatives from the European Commission in Brussels to discuss how to further progress of the Covenant initiative in Europe.

The Covenant of Mayors is an initiative for cities, shaped by cities. The Covenant Group of Practitioners brings together front-runner cities, regions and experts in climate mitigation, adaptation and access to energy from across Europe, and gives them the opportunity to contribute to consolidating and further developing the initiative, both in terms of key methodological and strategic questions. 

Over 20 Local and regional climate & energy experts from 16 European countries attended the December meeting in Brussels and exchanged with EU Commission representatives on a wide range of key issues for the future development of the Covenant of Mayors. The existing Covenant monitoring and reporting template, the integration of the access to energy pillar in the initiative and the mainstreaming of the initiative in national political and legal frameworks in European countries were among the main topics adressed.

The discussions were lively, fruitful and focused, and the invited representatives from cities, regions and national agencies appreciated the opportunity to engage in an open and frank exchange with the European Commission. In the following months, we will share the proposals made by the Covenant Group of Practitioners during this meeting. Stay tuned!
