On 21th of March, 23 European cities were awarded the Label of the EU Mission for Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities, one of the EU Missions in Horizon Europe. The EU Mission Label is an important milestone as it recognises the cities’ plans to achieve climate-neutrality already by 2030 and aims to facilitate access to public and private funding towards that objective.

The EU Mission Label was awarded by Iliana Ivanova, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth.

Congratulations to all 23 cities on this achievement! The label is an acknowledgement of your hard work and commitment to making your cities climate neutral and better places to live. I look forward to seeing the concrete projects that you develop as you move forward towards a more competitive, green and fair Europe. We will continue supporting you on this journey.

Iliana Ivanova, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth

Among these cities, Energy Cities is proud to find several of its members, all strongly involved in climate actions and decarbonization.
