C40 will welcome a new Chair next month

At today’s event, the outgoing chair passed the baton to C40’s Chair-elect. He outlined his agenda for concrete action on the climate crisis during his term:

  • Tackling air pollution by rolling out air quality measures to nearly 100 cities worldwide under the Breathe Global initiative.
  • Expanding C40’s Global Green New Deal programme, to boost partnerships between cities, trade unions, young people, business and community organisations.

The unified voice of 1,000 cities

C40’s event also included a showcase of over 1,000 cities and local governments that signed up to the Race to Zero campaign — committing to halving global emissions by 2030.
