Carbon Disclosure Project, ICLEI partner to help US cities report local climate actions, emissions
Date:8/10/2008

P>Paul Dickinson, CEO of CDP commented: 'Over 70% of total global emissions are generated from cities and if you don't measure these emissions, you cannot manage them. This is a vital step for city councils who wish to gain a better understanding of their own impact and by improving their understanding of risks and opportunities associated with climate change, best prepare their cities for a carbon constrained world.'

"ICLEI's partnership with the Carbon Disclosure Project underscores how crucial standards, quantification methods and voluntary reporting are to local climate action," said Michelle Wyman, Executive Director of ICLEI USA. "This project provides the opportunity for transparency, and is essential in the emerging national and global policy dialogue as the priorities of local governments to achieve swift and deep reductions are identified and advanced by local government leaders."

Said New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg: "The City of New York joins the world's leading corporations in providing a complete, accurate accounting of its carbon emissions, the strategies it is employing to mitigate those emissions, and the results of its efforts through the Carbon Disclosure Project and ICLEI. This partnership between the world's major corporations and, increasingly, its cities, highlights the importance of the cooperative action needed to successfully counter climate change. Working together, and with the best data, we can manage this problem, and leave our children and grandchildren a healthier and more sustainable planet."

The CDP Cities program is a voluntary disclosure process. Cities will submit their responses to CDP by October 31st 2008. All responses will be announced and published in the first ever CDP Cities Report and ICLEI Local Action Network Report in January 2009 respectively.
