In a resolute stance against climate change and its devastating impacts, Mayor Abby of Makati City has lent her voice to the chorus of mayors worldwide advocating for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty. Emphasizing the urgency of transitioning away from fossil fuels, Mayor Abby is aligned with the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (GCoM) in their mission to secure a global commitment towards renewable energy and the abandonment of fossil fuel reliance.

The GCoM, a powerful alliance of city leaders dedicated to combating climate change, is spearheading the call for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty. The treaty aims to address the root causes of climate change by demanding three pivotal commitments: no new expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure, a just and equitable phase-out of coal, oil, and gas, and a smooth transition to sustainable energy sources.

Mayor Abby, known for her unwavering dedication to sustainability and climate action, has reiterated her steadfast commitment to achieving the goals set forth by the treaty. Recognizing the pressing need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the harmful effects of climate change, she has aligned Makati City's initiatives with the principles outlined in the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty.


Under Mayor Abby's leadership, Makati City has been at the forefront of implementing sustainable practices and promoting renewable energy. The city has made significant strides in reducing its carbon footprint, implementing green infrastructure projects, and incentivizing the adoption of clean energy solutions. Mayor Abby's endorsement of the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty further solidifies her dedication to prioritizing the well-being of both present and future generations.

By supporting the treaty's pillars, Mayor Abby is advocating for an end to the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure. She recognizes the importance of preventing the construction of new coal plants, oil refineries, and gas terminals that perpetuate reliance on unsustainable energy sources. Instead, she envisions a future where investments are directed towards renewable energy systems that are cleaner, more efficient, and have a minimal impact on the environment.

Moreover, Mayor Abby is committed to a fair and just phase-out of existing coal, oil, and gas facilities. Understanding the socioeconomic implications of transitioning away from fossil fuels, she aims to ensure that affected communities receive the necessary support and resources to thrive in the renewable energy era. This approach aligns with the principle of a just energy transition, which emphasizes the need to protect workers' rights, promote social equity, and create sustainable job opportunities in the renewable energy sector.

Mayor Abby's endorsement of the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty reflects her strong leadership and determination to tackle climate change head-on. By joining forces with other mayors worldwide, she amplifies the collective voice advocating for global action on climate change. Her unwavering commitment to a sustainable and resilient future sets a powerful example for other leaders and communities to follow.


As Makati City continues to implement sustainable policies and initiatives, Mayor Abby remains resolute in her pursuit of a clean and green future. By echoing the call for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty, she reinforces her dedication to combatting climate change and protecting the environment. With her steadfast commitment and the collective efforts of global leaders, the transition to renewable energy and the eradication of fossil fuel reliance can become a reality, fostering a sustainable future for generations to come.
