Ten cities tackling climate change

The recent inaugural City Climate Leadership Awards recognized city innovation that accelerates action at the city level to combat  both the sources and impacts of climate change. A panel of seven judges (including former city Mayors, architects and representatives of the World Bank, C40 and Siemens) evaluated 29 shortlisted cities and 37 shortlisted projects. Ten cities were chosen as winners:

  • Bogota (Urban Transportation)
  • Copenhagen (Carbon Measurement & Planning)
  • Melbourne (Energy Efficient Built Environment)
  • Mexico City (Air Quality)
  • Munich (Green Energy)
  • New York City (Adaptation & Resilience)
  • Rio de Janeiro (Sustainable Communities)
  • San Francisco (Waste Management)
  • Singapore (Intelligent City Infrastructure)
  • Tokyo (Finance & Economic Development)

Future Cape Town reports about the results at the Sustainable Cities Collective.
