Large Cities Climate Leadership Group

The Large Cities Climate Leadership Group, also known as the C40 Cities (and originally as the C20 Cities) is a group of cities committed to the reduction of urban carbon emissions and adapting to climate change.

It believes it has an important role to play as cities contain around 50% of the world's population, consume 75% of the world's energy, and produce 80% per cent of its greenhouse gas emissions.

The group was founded following a meeting of delegations from over 20 cities at the October 2005 World Cities Leadership Climate Change Summit, organised by the Mayor of London, and the Group's secretariat is based in London.
On August 1, 2006 the Group signed a memorandum of understanding with the William J. Clinton Foundation's Climate Initiative, under which Clinton Foundation will provide technical and communications support.
The Large Cities Climate Leadership Group held their first summit in 2005 and the second summit in 2007 in London and New York respectively. At the 2nd summit 13 new cities joined the group. The third summit will be held from May 18 to 21, 2009 in Seoul.
