The C40 Cities Bloomberg Philanthropies Award was given to the city-to-city collaboration project between the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the City of Kuala Lumpur to decarbonize the building sector.
With the support of the Ministry of the Environment’s Intercity Collaboration Project to Realize a Decarbonized Society, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, in partnership with the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), helped establish a system to decarbonization the building sector in Kuala Lumpur. The contributions of this project were recognized by the 2022 C40 Cities Bloomberg Philanthropies Awards in the “United to Build a Climate Movement” category. Presented every few years since 2013 by the C40 (Climate Leadership Group), this prestigious award is a friendly competition among the world’s leading cities to celebrate pioneering climate projects and raise global awareness of cities that are leading climate change measures.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has been promoting a climate crisis action movement that originated in Tokyo, called “TIME TO ACT”, which calls on the world to take effective action. Encouraged by this award, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government will continue to accelerate its own initiatives to tackle the climate change crisis and contribute to decarbonization in cooperation with cities around the world.
