Climate Action Partnership Formed as Part of European Green Deal
The European Commission’s (EC) Directorate-General for Climate Action (DG CLIMA) has engaged global consulting and digital services provider, to lead a partnership of prominent organizations in climate, outreach and engagement – including Friends of Europe – to deliver its signature European Green Deal initiative, the European Climate Pact.
The newly formed partnership, named “Promitto” (or “I pledge” in Latin), also includes CDP, Count Us In, Denkskatt, Ifok, IASS, LOW and Ramboll. These partners will provide strategic design, operations and secretariat services to DG CLIMA to help raise awareness for the Pact; build an EU-wide understanding about climate change; encourage citizens and organizations to pledge to concrete climate and environmental actions; and provide spaces and opportunities for co-creation, learning and networking. These services will capitalize on the latest digital tools and technologies for engagement.
Launched in December 2020, the European Climate Pact is an EU-wide initiative inviting people, communities and organizations to participate in climate action and build a greener Europe. Its goal is to mobilize a social movement of millions of people across the EU to make a difference in reducing carbon pollution and catalyzing rapid action from leaders across Europe by providing online and offline spaces and opportunities for citizens and organizations to learn, inspire and connect.
“The EU will need the support of every one of its 448 million inhabitants if the bloc is to be climate neutral by 2050. At Friends of Europe, we believe that the European Climate Pact can play an important role in building climate action from the ground up and boosting sustainable initiatives of citizens and organisations. We’re excited to use our decades-long experience of connecting citizens and policymakers to help make the European Climate Pact a success.”
