The world’s leading reporting platform for local and subnational climate action – the carbonn Climate Registy (cCR) – welcomes its 500th reporting city today, with the new addition of the City of Bristol, United Kingdom.
ICLEI, the leading cities network operating carbonn Climate Registry, announced this today at the ongoing United Nations Lima Climate Change, taking place 1–12 December 2014 in Lima, Peru.
Bristol, the European Green Capital 2015 and the first UK city to report into the cCR, now joins the growing list of pioneering cities that have embraced leadership and responsibility in tackling climate change locally and inspiring action globally. Other frontrunners on the cCR include: Seoul, South Korea; Rajkot, India; Belo Horizonte, Brazil; Hermosillo, Mexico; Cape Town, South Africa; and Paris, France.
Bristol’s Mayor, George Ferguson, commented, “Bristol aims to cut emissions by 40% by 2020. We’ve already cut emissions by 20% since the base date of 2005. Reporting our climate action data into the carbonn Climate Registry helps us to keep track of our targets and inspire cities and nations to set more ambitious targets and act urgently to address the pressing issue of climate change.”
