Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance

Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance (2015; 4 leadership staff; carbonneutralcities.org)

A coalition of 21 metropolises, mostly located in the western hemisphere, that have pledged to work “aggressively toward a zero-carbon future to advance their own transformational efforts, collaborate with each other and key partners to overcome barriers, foster innovative approaches, and share lessons with other cities ready to pursue similar goals.”

The pledge includes “that by 2050 or sooner, Alliance member cities will achieve carbon neutrality and that this will engender greater economic prosperity, social equity, enhanced quality of life, and climate resilience for the people and businesses in our cities.” They try to lead by example by showcasing that carbon neutrality is achievable by major cities and therefore on a global level as well.
