The Action Plan

Aggiornato il: 03/05/2023


To achieve climate neutrality by 2030, ahead of the 2050 deadline fixed by the EU climate law.

The selected cities will have eight years available to achieve climate neutrality by implementing research and innovation actions that will concern sustainable mobility, energy efficiency and green urban planning. The proposed sustainability strategies will be able to work jointly with other European programmes, such as those relating to measures for adapting to climate change, restoring water and oceans and maintaining the well-being of the soil and people.

The approach envisaged by the project to contain climate change is holistic and integrated: the one hundred selected cities in fact are called to intervene with a general action plan, capable of bringing together all the sectors of interest and inherent to energy, construction, waste and transport management, circular economy.

A commitment that will involve both citizens and public and private research organizations for the achievement of the common goal: the shared transition towards a more sustainable future.

The first step that all cities must take is the signing of the Climate Contract City.

Contract City Climate

The 100 pilot cities that have taken up the challenge of becoming climate-neutral by 2030 will sign a "Climate City Contract", which is a contract adapted to the realities of each city that includes everyone's voices at all levels.

The Climate City Contract will give people and civil society an active role, provide new platforms for action and better resources to design and implement climate action.

The clear and tangible commitments made by the cities in the citizens' climate contracts will allow them to dialogue with the European, national and regional authorities but above all with the population to achieve this ambitious goal.

While not a legally binding instrument, the contract constitutes a clear and visible political commitment towards both Europe and national/regional authorities and the citizenship itself.
