Union of the Baltic Cities Sustainable Cities Commission

Union of the Baltic Cities Sustainable Cities Commission is one of the thematic Commissions of the Union of the Baltic Cities (UBC). Union of the Baltic Cities is a voluntary, proactive network mobilizing the shared potential of its member cities for democratic, economic, social, cultural and environmentally sustainable development of the Baltic Sea Region.

We at UBC Sustainable Cities Commission are responsible for the environmental and urban sustainability activities within UBC and we co-ordinate the UBC Sustainability Action Programme which is closely linked to the EU strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. We operate via development projects, member city conferences and policy meetings.

CDP, the global climate change disclosure non-profit organisation, and the leading city network in the Baltic Sea Region, the Union of the Baltic Cities (UBC), agreed on a two-year MoU to increase the number of Baltic Sea Region cities using systematic reporting of their climate change related actions. After the first year of cooperation UBC more than doubled the number of member cities using the platform and the goal for 2018 is to get up to 50 UBC cities involved.
