| R20, in partnership with the Terra Mileniul Foundation (Romania) and the Romanian Municipalities Association, with financial support from the Swiss Government, committed in 2015-2016 to designing, developing and implementing a low carbon and climate resilient Action Plan geared to reduce their CO2 emission by 20% – 40 % by the year 2020.
The plan was also to involve a group of 5 municipalities; Alba Lulia, Roman, Focsani, Fagaras and Rosiorii de Vede. They have all committed to reducing their carbon footprint.
