Overview
C40 works to support Chinese city climate action plans and implementation. As China’s climate paradigm shifted from central government policy change to sub-national implementation, the role of Chinese cities and mayors in ensuring substantial emissions reduction has become increasingly significant. This project will help strengthen city mayors’ political will through a better understanding and demonstration of a new growth model that’s built upon low-carbon policy, designs, and investments. It will also scale up Chinese city climate actions through C40’s network of Chinese and international mayors and their learnings, exchanges, and cooperation. (Substrategy: China National Policy)

for the EV transition project  
C40 is a network of the world’s megacities committed to addressing climate change. This grant will support advancing vehicle electrification in three to five North American cities who are signatories to C40’s Green and Healthy Streets Declaration. The signatory cities have agreed to procure only zero-emission buses by 2025, and to ensure that a substantial central area of their city is zero emission by 2030. C40 will leverage many of its networks to provide technical assistance and launch a strategic communications campaign to build support for mayors to realize the goals of the declaration.
