Leading Local Governments Association Partners with the World Climate Summit
World Climate Summit - June 24, 2010 - Brussels, Cambridge, Copenhagen, Mexico City, Aspen

ICLEI, the world's leading local government association addressing climate change has partnered with the World Climate Summit.

ICLEI will reach out and promote the World Climate Summit to their 1,100 member metropolises, cities, towns, counties and regions from around the world, and other city associations. They will bring as many government leaders to the largest business conference during COP 16. The World Climate Summit will serve as the annual platform where metropolises, cities, towns, counties, and regions can network and collaborate with businesses and investors on solutions to climate change such as renewable energy, clean transportation, waste management, efficient buildings and smart grids.

ICLEI will also work on an innovative global city initiative with the World Climate Summit to be announced later this year.

ICLEI Secretary General, Konrad Otto-Zimmermann said, "Climate Change is happening. Simultaneously, we are depleting the Earth's natural resources base, the world population continues to grow, and more and more humans are living in cities. For urban life to be sustainable, we need urban infrastructure to become eco-efficient and resilient. We must think radically and act rapidly to accelerate this process. This is why ICLEI is facilitating city-to-business dialogues on urban infrastructure solutions. The World Climate Summit is a key venue for these dialogues."

Michael Mathres, co-Founder of the World Climate Summit said, "We are delighted to have ICLEI as our Local Government Partner. With their help, we will bring as many local governments to the World Climate Summit so that we can bring business and finance solutions to transform them into low carbon beacons."
