Greensboro, with Vaughan as its Mayor since Dec. 2013, has overseen several city initiatives in place to help sustainability.

“As mayor of the City of Greensboro, I fully support the Mayor’s National Climate Action Agenda. I am eager to join so that Greensboro can work together with other cities throughout the country to strengthen local efforts for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and supporting efforts for binding federal and global-level policymaking. It is now more important than ever for cities to act and be advocates for minimizing the effects of climate change. This isn’t new to Greensboro though, as we have made sustainability a priority for years,” Vaughan said.

In North Carolina, the Mayors of Charlotte, Durham, Asheville and Winston-Salem have joined the group. Mayors from New York, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles are also involved.
