Mayors Climate Protection Center  
The Mayors Climate Protection Center of the United States Conference of Mayors, partnered with Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. in Spring 2007, to jointly work to combat global warming by launching an annual Mayors’ Climate Protection Awards Program. The awards program will honor leading efforts by mayors in American cities who are taking action and implementing innovative programs to decrease energy dependency and reduce climate emissions in the communities they serve. The winning mayors will demonstrate a true commitment and progress toward the goals that the Mayors Climate Protection Center and Wal-Mart share, including: to protect our environment, increase energy efficiency in cities, and make our planet sustainable for generations to come. To learn more about the positive impact that a variety of Wal-Mart’s environmental programs are already having on businesses and communities, please visit their web site at

The 2030 Challenge
The U.S. Conference of Mayors and its partner, The American Institute of Architects recognize that creating energy-efficient, high performance buildings is a central part of the climate change solution. To that end, The USCM and AIA promote integrated, sustainable building design with a goal of reaching a 50 percent fossil fuel reduction by 2010 and carbon neutral buildings by 2030.

Enery Star

EPA Energy Star Challenge
The U.S. Conference of Mayors has teamed up with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star Program to provide solutions to help mayors meet their cities’ climate protection goals, the goals of The U.S. Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Agreement, and the goals of the 2030 Building Challenge.

More than 65% of Americans recognize ENERGY STAR as a national symbol of energy efficiency. In 2006 alone, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved $14 billion on their energy bills and prevented the release of greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 25 million vehicles.
