With its new programme, WWF is promoting easy access for local governments to increase energy efficiency in their cities. This includes smaller measures and quick-win actions as well as more systemic considerations related to urban planning.

The basic pillars are:
  • improve urban planning to reduce climate impact
  • optimise building envelopes to reduce emissions and consumption
  • produce green products and services
  • raise awareness and inspire people to act

This is especially important as cities are responsible for 70% of energy consumption and emissions, but at the same time are the center of climate action to make changes for a more sustainable future.

The factsheets provide many examples of changes made in major cities all around the world.
