“The Compact of Mayors reinforces our commitment to the City of Iowa City. We want to continue to make Iowa City a place where people want to live and where businesses want to invest,” said Mayor Throgmorton. “The actions we take to address climate change at a local level will not only improve the quality of life in our community, but will also have a far-reaching global impact now and into the future.”
As one of the key initiatives launched at the Climate Summit in 2014, the Compact of Mayors is the world’s largest collective effort by cities to date to tackle climate change. For more information, visit www.compactofmayors.org.
