Mayor: Sandy Verschoor
The City of Adelaide is aspiring to be the world’s first carbon neutral city and an international leader in environmental change. They have built a reputation on being a city that actively reduces carbon emissions, uses resources wisely, and is enriched by thriving natural ecological systems. The Global Covenant of Mayors is another critical part of their commitment to this identity and long-term vision.
The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy is an international alliance of cities with a shared long-term vision of promoting voluntary action to combat climate change and transition to low-emission and resilient societies. The Global Covenant now includes over 9,130 cities from 120 countries, representing over 775 million people and 10.55% of the total global population, and is the largest global network of councils leading action on climate change.
