This commitment was renewed with the elaboration of the Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan aiming at reducing its greenhouse gases emissions by 40% by 2030. The City is supported by the Foundation Climate Change Observatory (also a partner in TOMORROW), promoting sustainable urban development, climate-justice and energy democracy to improve leaving condition for its citizens.
