Creating a site that reflects the growth of this leading global climate organisation
We began working with global leadership organisation C40 Cities in 2020, helping them to create a new website that much better reflects their growing leadership in the global climate space.
The result is a low carbon (down over 90% from 6.7 to 0.34g), super fast, engaging site that now clearly represents C40 Cities as a prominent voice that links climate change to issues of social, economic and environmental justice.

Being a global organisation, it’s essential that C40 Cities’ website is accessible to audiences around the world.
To ensure this, we configured the new site with GTranslate, so it can be translated into the required language from a drop down menu in the header.
Interactive city map
- Custom and different pin icons for cities that are steering committee members
- Search and custom filters to display cities that are in a certain region and/or have signed a certain declaration. The C40 Cities team can add to, or remove content within any of these filters as needed
- Dynamic modals with high-level info and a link to individual city pages.
Streamlined architecture and improved search function
With such a wide and varied audience, including political leaders, CEO’s, trade unions, investors, civil society, citizens, media, youth, funders, C40 staff and client organisations, it’s vital that the architecture of the site is streamlined to make it easy for every visitor to the new site can find what they are looking for.
Following an in depth discovery to identify the main audience, the site content was reorganised to make navigation more intuitive, and we updated the search functionality, consolidating and simplifying content structures with filters for topics, type and relevant cities or initiatives.
