The City set a global goal for 2030: to reduce GHG emissions by 30% compared with 2008 levels, in a business as usual scenario (BAU). By enhancing green spaces and planting trees and plants, the temperature of Buenos Aires is expected to fall by up to 6ºC by 2034. Green motorways and macro-blocks are also contemplated in the plan, the latter aiming for a 50% reduction in levels of noise pollution, and a 97% reduction in CO2 emissions.
Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri: “If you want to have a modern city you need to adapt and evolve. Every week cities receive hundreds of citizens that come to look for a job or new experiences or simply to have fun and they all demand quality services.”

Mayor Bill de Blasio said "Climate change represents one of the greatest challenges to our city, which is why we've committed to an 80 percent reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. "To move us toward our goals, we'll need the city's brightest minds and ideas, which is why Urban Tech NYC is so important.

"The 21st century will be the century of the city, following on from the 19th century, when national states were formed, and the 20th century, in which supra-national organisations like the United Nations, the European Union and the Bretton Woods Institutions took shape. The cities will be the first to be hit by all the known Global Challenges, such as mobility, housing, health, food and climate. Cities will have to find ways to provide their citizens with a safe, healthy and financially sound living, by taking a pragmatic and non-ideological approach. There is an opportunity here for urban politics to achieve this, not by viewing citizens solely as end-users and forcing solutions on them, but by collaborating with citizens in the use of modern technology, and working together with them, as co-developers of their own society".
