Belgian Covenant of Mayors Coordinator Vlaams-Brabant province is highlighting the inspirational local climate actions happening on its territory through an innovative online map.

Vlaams-Brabant province has been a Covenant Coordinator since September 2012and is currently supporting over 60 Covenant signatory municipalities in its constituency. The province aims to become climate neutral by 2040 and for this purpose, is seeking to reduce its CO2 emissions by at least 80% compared to 2011. In order to achieve this ambitious target, the involvement of every inhabitant of Vlaams-Brabant is required, says Tie Roefs, vice-governor for environment and sustainability of the province.

The climate map of Vlaams-Brabant province includes over 1,192 local climate and energy initiatives and projects, in the areas of mobility, building, agriculture, energy production and consumption. It is an interactive map that enables municipalities and local stakeholders (e.g. companies, citizen groups, schools, etc.) to include their actions in a user-friendly way. Renewable energy producers for instance can use the map to calculate their contribution to the CO2 reduction efforts of the province.

Each initiative featured on the map has a detailed pop-up information chart. Furthermore, Vlaams-Brabant's climate map contains an overview dashboard for the provincial territory, as well as a local dashboard for each municipality. These dashboards visualise the annual evolution of CO2 emissions from each sector through interactive graphs.

For the Covenant municipalities that are covered by the supportive umbrella of Vlaams-Brabant province, the climate map provides a multitude of useful information for the implementation of their SE(C)APs. Renewable energy production graphs e.g. allow municipalities to compare their present production for each renewable energy source with the respective potential production.

Moreover, the climate map enables these municipalities to easily keep track of their SE(C)AP implementation and CO2 emission reduction trajectory. And for Vlaams-Brabant province, the climate map is an invaluable tool to monitor progress on achieving its goal to become climate-neutral by 2040!
