Climate Alliance

A strong community for the global climate

For more than 25 years Climate Alliance stands for a holistic approach to climate protection. Its over 1,700 member municipalities throughout Europe have committed themselves to reducing their impacts locally. In recognition of the key role rainforest protection has to play in fighting climate change, these local authorities act in solidarity with the indigenous peoples of the Amazon. Together, they form the Climate Alliance.

Tangible targets

The towns and cities of the Alliance have each passed local resolutions embracing the following voluntary commitments:

  • to reduce CO2 emissions by 10% every five years and to halve per capita emissions by 2030 (from a 1990 baseline)
  • to preserve the tropical rainforests, by, for example, avoiding the use of tropical timber and supporting the initiatives of the indigenous partners 


Climate Alliance members

Since its beginnings in 1990, more than 1,700 cities, municipalities and districts in 26 European countries have joined the Climate Alliance along with a variety of regional governments, NGOs and other like-minded organisations.
