Miami Joins Global 'C40 Cities' Network
Published on January 15, 2020
Last week, the City of Miami was named as the newest member of C40 Cities, a global network of 95 cities committed to tackling climate change and increase the economic and environmental well being of their residents. Joining the organization is in line with Miami’s place on the front lines of climate adaptation, as well as its continuing efforts to build a more resilient city.
Miami declared a climate emergency in November 2019, and the City has been working aggressively to combat the threat of a climate change for several years. Going forward, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has called for the creation and implementation of a comprehensive climate action plan, which will be revealed in the near future. Reducing carbon emissions from transportation, improving building energy efficiency, increasing green energy supplies and changing consumption patterns are also priorities.
Mayor Suarez welcomed the C40 news, stating: “Miami continues to take bold actions to adapt our climate challenges. Being selected to this esteemed network of global cities committed to climate solutions highlights our leadership in preparing for and responding to environmental threats and gives us a seat at the table with other global leaders to collaborate over future solutions together.”
