The Covenant of Mayors is an initiative born in the European Union in 2008 that has gradually grown to become the largest movement, on a global scale, of cities for actions in favor of climate and energy.
The signatory cities are committed to supporting the implementation of the EU’s 40% greenhouse gas reduction target by 2030, and the adoption of a common approach to tackle mitigation and adaptation to climate change.
To translate their commitment into concrete terms, the Municipalities adhering to the Pact undertake to present an Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SECAP) which indicates the key actions they intend to take.
The plan contains a Basic Inventory of CO2 Emissions to monitor mitigation actions and the vulnerability assessment and climate risks.
Sigeambiente supports the public body in the preparation of the Carbon footprint inventory (parameter that is used to estimate the greenhouse gas emissions caused by a product, a service, an organization, an event or an individual, generally expressed in tons of CO2 equivalent – ISO 14064 and ISO 14067) and the Plan and defining the actions useful for achieving the objectives of reduction and climate change resilience according to the European Directives on the subject.
