Zagreb adopts the first SECAP in Croatia

Last month, ICLEI Member Zagreb became the first city in Croatia to adopt a Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SECAP).

The city, in cooperation with the North-West Croatia Regional Energy Agency, prepared an action plan that maps out 23 measures to reduce CO2 emissions, as well as 35 measures to adapt to climate change. These measures have the potential to reduce Zagreb’s CO2 emissions by over 40 percent by 2030.

Critically, Zagreb’s SECAP includes precise instructions for implementation. This is set to ensure that recommendations are adopted and emissions reductions are reached.

Zagreb has proven itself to be a national leader on climate action. The city was also the first in Croatia to be a signatory to the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, having signed in 2008.
