Mayor Rahm Emanuel is in Mexico City today to take part in a climate change summit organized by the C40 group of global cities.
Emanuel departed Chicago on Wednesday afternoon with three staffers and is set to return midday Friday, according to city spokesman Grant Klinzman. The conference is paying the travel costs for Emanuel and one staff member, while the economic development agency World Business Chicago is paying for two other staff members, Klinzman said.
He said the conference will pay for Emanuel and Chief Sustainability Officer Chris Wheat, while World Business Chicago will pay for mayoral spokesman Adam Collins and Lisa Kohnke, the city’s director of strategic partnerships and global affairs. Klinzman said World Business Chicago would have specifics on the costs of their portion of the trip afterward.
