Game Changer Project

Game Changer Project

Cities have limited access to early-stage risk capital for implementing some of the riskier strategies for decarbonizing key systems at a scale considered “transformational.” Thus, in 2018 CNCA is creating a new “Game Changer Project” to foster even greater capacity within CNCA and other cities to implement critical, groundbreaking work that advances the global field of deep urban decarbonization.

CNCA defines transformation in the following way: “A ‘transformative’ strategy is one that leads to carbon neutrality becoming an expected and eventually mandated feature of a sector’s operations by 2050.”

By targeting actions that have the highest potential for rapid, deep urban GHG emissions reductions in key emissions sectors (energy supply, buildings, transportation, waste and food), the Game Changer Project seeks to drive transformative change in each of these strategy areas.
