Participation of José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, in the Covenant of Mayors Ceremony

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, and Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, received Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Governor of California and Founding Chair of the "R20 Regions of Climate Action". They then participated with Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Digital Agenda, in the 4th ceremony of the Covenant of Mayors, which was held at the EP in Brussels. This Covenant was an initiative by the EC from 2008 that helped the local level to meet and exceed the climate and energy goals. It counted almost 5000 signatories in the EU and across the globe.
The EC planned to do more in the future with spending 20% of the EU budget for the years up to 2020 on climate related activities, both within the EU and in the partner countries abroad – the so-called green mainstreaming.
