Climate Pact with the Municipalities
The Climate Pact with the Municipalities consists of a 2012 law, amended on March 29th, 2016, that aims at encouraging greenhouse gases emissions mitigation at the municipality level. The law authorises the State to subsidy, from 2013 to 2020, the municipalities committed via the signature of a Climate Pact to apply a mitigation programme. Such a programme must comprise a quality assessment ending up in a «European Energy Award®» certificate and quantified measures.
Several types of subsidies are elaborated to encourage municipalities to adopt and seriously commit to the Pact. These subsidies are modified in the 2016 amendment.
