11.19.14 C40 Cities
Tokyo co-leads the C40 Private Building Efficiency Network, a group of cities committed not only to tackling energy efficiency in their own buildings, but also to collaborating with others so they can take faster action, and have more impact. These cities are already pioneering new policies for their buildings, often moving quicker than nations or regions. Despite this, there is an evidence gap on what is happening at the city level. It was through discussions with fellow members of the Network that Tokyo saw the need to capture best practice from cities around the world, and share it.
The result, Urban Efficiency: A global survey of building energy efficiency policies in cities, is a compelling example of C40 cities’ leadership and collaboration, sharing information to support each other’s carbon reduction efforts.
