Participation in the Covenant of Mayors opened up new opportunities for the development of the city of Spitak, and gave additional impetus to the implementation of various energy efficiency and local renewable energy generation projects. Since joining the Covenant in May 2014, numerous measures have been taken in our community to reduce GHG emissions in street lighting, public and residential buildings, kindergartens, cultural and educational institutions and other facilities. One of the most significant projects for the thermal insulation of more than twenty-five apartment buildings is carried out exclusively thanks to the participation of Spitak in the Covenant. We are pleased that our city’s participation in this global initiative not only helps to improve the living conditions of our citizens, but also makes a definite contribution to the global fight against climate change.
Mayor of Spitak, Armenia
