Green governance


Green governance

Cities' strategies and ambitious aims need a strong implementation structure. Green governance takes into consideration various green methods and approaches the city administration can take to ensure sustainable and climate resilient operation.

Green procurement approach strengthens the sustainable priority in tendering and purchasing, placing emphasis on the environmentally friendly goods and services, to contribute to sustainable consumption and production. Integrated management enables a holistic approach to the management practices, to take into account cross-cutting issues, multiple stakeholders and processes. Climate budgeting highlights the financial path for the government to reach its climate-related and carbon emissions goals.

We offer various tools to address green governance, including reporting of the cities' climate actions via the CDP initiative, and engaging in the Voluntary Local Reviews to support the local progress towards UN Sustainable Development Goals.
