Kyoto Club is a non-profit organisation founded in February 1999. Its members are business companies, associations and local municipalities and governments engaged in reaching the greenhouse gas reduction targets set by the Kyoto Protocol, by the EU ones for 2030 and by the December 2015 Paris Agreement.
To reach its goals and to support bio, green and circular economy patterns, Kyoto Club promotes awareness-raising initiatives, information and training to foster energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, waste reduction and recycling and sustainable agriculture and mobility.
Towards Italian, EU and UNFCCC public decision-makers, Kyoto Club puts forward policy proposals to make institutional decisions more and more environment and climate friendly.
Kyoto Club’s activities are based on the following key national and EU strategies:
- The increase of the environmental dimension in business culture and the dissemination of best practices.
- The promotion of eco-efficiency policies and the use of renewable energy sources.
- The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in urban areas.
- The development of new eco-compatible productions and the investments in technological innovation.
- The mainstreaming of environmental management systems, eco and energy labelling.
- The dialogue and networking among institutions and business companies.
