My local authority is already a signatory of the Covenant of Mayors - How can we sign up to the new Covenant commitments?
As an existing signatory, you can sign up at any time the new Covenant commitments by adopting them in your municipal council and submitting the duly signed adhesion form available here.
If you have signed up to the Covenant of Mayors but have not yet started the preparation of your Sustainable Energy Action Plan:
You may instead consider channelling your efforts to prepare a Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan, which focus on a 2030 horizon as well as on resilience to the impacts of climate change. At the time of submitting your SECAP you will be requested to provide your new adhesion form.
If you have signed up to the Covenant of Mayors and have submitted a Sustainable Energy Action Plan:
You should keep your focus in implementing the 2020 commitments adopted by your municipal council and in assessing the progress towards them. If you wish to submit a Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan before 2020, you should first report on your 2020 SEAP by submitting a monitoring template.
It will be up to each existing signatory to decide according to their planning cycles when they would like to sign up to the new commitments and thus prepare and submit a SECAP.
Please note that local authorities, who have previously signed the commitments for 2020 and now want to extend their commitments further, should send their adhesion form for the new Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy directly to email@example.com. It is not technically possible to register as signatory twice.
