What European Climate Pact Ambassador Program is all about.

European Climate Pact Ambassador Program is organized by the EEAS, or the European External Action Service, serves as the diplomatic arm of the European Union. Its primary mission is to assist the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy in implementing the Common Foreign and Security Policy of the Union. A crucial facet of the EEAS’s role involves close collaboration with the foreign and defense ministries of EU member states, as well as other EU institutions like the European Commission, Council, and Parliament.

Furthermore, it maintains robust working ties with international organizations such as the United Nations and other global entities. Pact Ambassadors act in their personal or professional capacity as representatives of a community or organisation, not on behalf of the European Commission. Being a Pact Ambassador does not involve organisational or financial support from the European Commission. Pact Ambassadors are selected based on their compliance with the Pact’s objectives and values and according to the progress of activities, such as ensuring proportionate representation across all Member States.
