The collective voice of cities was essential in showing the way to national leaders to deliver the bold Paris Agreement on climate change. Just as they were key to securing the Paris Agreement, cities will be central to the efforts to deliver it. For more than a decade, mayors have been providing global leadership on climate change through common platforms and networks for declaring commitments and joining action like the C40 and the Global Covenant of Mayors.

Paris is proud to be amongst the most welcoming cities in the world for start-ups and innovation and we recognise the pivotal role that organisations have to play in helping us secure a sustainable future.
