The City of Reykjavik has been A-listed as part of a new generation of cities leading regarding action on climate change.
CDP is behind the rating that lists bold leaders in environmental transparency and action. Only 95 cities worldwide have received this highest recognition.
„To score an A, among other actions, a city must disclose publicly and have a city-wide emissions inventory, have set an emissions reduction target and a renewable energy target for the future; and have published a climate action plan. An A List city must also complete a climate risk and vulnerability assessment and have a climate adaptation plan to demonstrate how it will tackle climate hazards. And it must be making progress towards achieving its ambitious but realistic goals.“
