Climate Action Partnership Formed as Part of European Green Deal
Brussels, Belgium (February 25, 2021)— The European Commission's Directorate-General for Climate Action (DG CLIMA) has engaged global consulting and digital services provider ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI) to lead a partnership of prominent organizations in climate, outreach and engagement that will work in close collaboration with the Commission to deliver the European Climate Pact, an initiative launched as part of the European Green Deal.
The newly formed partnership, named “Promitto” (or “I pledge” in Latin), includes ICF, CDP Europe, Count Us In, denkstatt, Friends of Europe, Ifok, IASS, LOW, Presencing Institute and Ramboll. These partners will provide strategic design, operations and secretariat services to DG CLIMA to help raise awareness for the Pact; build an EU-wide understanding about climate change; encourage citizens and organizations to pledge to concrete climate and environmental actions; and provide spaces and opportunities for co-creation, learning and networking. These services will capitalize on the latest digital tools and technologies for engagement.
Launched in December 2020, the European Climate Pact is an EU-wide initiative inviting people, communities and organizations to participate in climate action and build a greener Europe. Its goal is to help mobilize and support a social movement of millions of people across the EU to get involved in the green transition, inspire each other and develop and scale up solutions.
“The solutions outlined in the European Green Deal can only succeed if everyone is involved and actively contributes,” said Tobias Schaefer, ICF senior vice president and Europe and Asia lead. “The European Climate Pact is an opportunity for people from all walks of life and organizations of any size to take practical action to address climate change. We are committed to connecting with many networks, associations and other stakeholders across Europe that play an important role in the success of the Pact.”
