The Green City Accord (currently in preparation) will mobilise cities to engage in more ambitious action towards fulfilling the requirements of the EU's environment acquis and will also support the delivery of the European Green Deal's environment ambition.

The Accord will, in its first phase, engage a community of cities willing to undertake further commitments to improving air and water quality, waste management, noise pollution and to enhance the protection of their green areas.

The Green City Accord will set ambitious goals in each of these areas which the cities will take ownership of. The main hope is that green cities will become a reality and that as a result, the health of Europe's citizens will improve.
