Green-City/Zero-emission City district
Covenant of Mayors in the region of Heidelberg
On 16 April 2010, more than 40 mayors gathered in Heidelberg to agree on common climate projects. Organised by Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region and the City of Heidelberg, this conference culminated with the 11 mayors of the region signing up to the Covenant. The 11 communities were not alone in showing their enthusiasm for the initiative. The Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region took the opportunity to become an official supporting structure of the Covenant of Mayors. Thus we can ensure greater climate protection in our region. Moreover, this cooperation will lead to the development of a new regional energy concept, the extension of renewable energies in the region, as well as the development of CO2 balancing models.
