The latest climate science is clear. We must halve global emissions by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050 if we are to build a zero emissions and safe, resilient planet for all.

Cities, representing up to 70% of global emissions, and with 50% of the world’s population living within their walls, have a key role to play.

Data is central to effective action. In the past ten years, CDP has seen a 17-fold increase in the number of cities disclosing through the CDP-ICLEI Unified Reporting system, from 48 in 2011 to 812 in 2020.

At the frontlines of both the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate crisis, and despite increased pressure and reduced resources, cities know that measuring and managing their environmental impacts and risks is vital for future resilience.
