UBC Cities leading the way to climate neutrality
It has already been five years since the launch of UBC-CDP cooperation, and we have a number of our member cities consistently reporting their environmental data demonstrating actions in climate change adaptation and mitigation in our region.
The year 2020 will be remembered by the fast-spreading Covid-19 virus and the disruption of established everyday routines. Despite the difficult situation, we are happy to announce that the 2020 disclosure year also brought three newcomers to the list of disclosing cities and all together 23 UBC cities disclosed in 2020.
Also 7 UBC cities made it into the CDP A-list cities. These cities were awarded for their ambitious work and best results in tackling the impacts of climate change.

Highlighting actions from our member cities
UBC publishes every year a UBC-CDP cooperation report based on the data member cities disclose to CDP.
The 2020 cooperation report “Scaling up for the next decade – UBC cities leading the way to climate neutrality” will be published shortly.
The 2019 cooperation report “UBC cities' adaptation actions to extreme weather events” highlights nature-based solutions as well as adaptation planning activities from the cities. These so-called “blue-green solutions” are gaining momentum and are becoming more and more important in the face of the changing climate. In this report we have included good examples and comments from our member cities and hopefully, these concrete examples inspire others and help make our region more resilient to different kinds of climate hazards.

About UBC - CDP cooperation
In the XIV UBC General Conference on 24–27 October 2017 in Växjö, Sweden, a joint report by UBC and CDP on Climate Leadership from Baltic Sea Region Cities was launched.
CDP, formerly Carbon Disclosure Project, is an international, not-for-profit organisation providing a global system for companies, cities, states and regions to measure, disclose, manage and share vital information on their environmental performance. Over the past 17 years CDP has created a system that has resulted in unparalleled engagement on environmental issues worldwide. CDP now holds the most comprehensive collection globally of primary environmental data and puts these insights at the heart of strategic business, investment and policy decisions.
