Europe is committed to sustainability. Local governments have been some of the most successful actors in putting this commitment into practice - many of them ICLEI Members.
ICLEI represents local governments in all relevant policy processes for sustainability in Europe. ICLEI works together with other European networks, the European Commission, the Committee of the Regions, and many other organisations involved in formulating EU policies and strategies.
The organisation is actively engaged in the European Sustainable Cities & Towns Campaign, which is associated with the globally recognised Aalborg Charter and Commitments, and supports the Covenant of Mayors Initiative.
The ICLEI European Secretariat is situated in and generously supported by ICLEI's Member city Freiburg, Germany, since 1992. A large majority of European activities are funded by European, national or local governments.
The ICLEI European Secretariat is led by Managing Director Wolfgang Teubner.
The European Secretariat is also a fully certified EMASplus enterprise. For further information, click here.
