On June 22, 2016, the Compact of Mayors and the Covenant of Mayors announced the new Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy, a newly merged initiative to bring these two efforts together.

591 cities, representing 442,879,041 people worldwide and 6.11% of the total global population, have committed to the Compact of Mayors.

“Cities are the drivers of progress and innovation, and through the Compact of Mayors, they can help nations set new, aggressive climate targets over the next year.”

– Michael R. Bloomberg, UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change
