What does the ICLEI name mean?

ICLEI was established as the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives, but no longer uses that full name. The organization is officially ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability.

Throughout this website, members of the media will find information, resources and contacts on the subjects of local climate action and sustainability.

“Embarking on an environmental program sounds like a great idea. But if you’re a mayor trying to cut greenhouse gases, where do you begin? How do even know how to measure your current levels? That’s where an organization called ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability can help.” –
