ICLEI offers consultancy, training, and study visits for cities in pursuit of a sustainable future.  As an independent consultancy, ICLEI advises and guides cities from policy preparation to project implementation.

ICLEI works with European institutions and other organizations to influence and shape the debate on urban sustainability policies and legislation.  It ensures that project financing is formulated to address sustainability challenges and made available to cities, regions and public authorities.

ICLEI represents local and regional governments in European and global policy processes and connects local and regional governments with peers, national governments, intergovernmental institutions, business, academia, finance, and civil society.
