C40
Cities are where the future happens first. The C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, now in its 10th year, connects more than 80 of the world’s greatest cities, representing over 600 million people and one quarter of the global economy.

Created and led by cities, C40 is focused on tackling climate change and driving urban action that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks, while increasing the health, wellbeing and economic opportunities of urban citizens.

WorldChanging: Zerofootprint Cities
London Mayor Ken Livingstone, chair of the C40, said at the launch of the programme: “National governments still struggle to agree a way forward on global warming, but cities, which are responsible for around three quarters of global greenhouse gas emissions, are today demonstrating the leadership and decisive action necessary to prevent catastrophic climate change.”
This is what has motivated us to launch Zerofootprint Cities, an initiative to link the citizens of the world’s cities around software that combines an environmental footprint calculator, linked to social networking and business intelligence tools.
