Front Cover COP22 Edition
CCTNE along with its industry partners recently called for the urgent, accelerated implementation of climate action at COP22, held in Marrakech, November 7 to 18, 2016.
COP22 took over the reins from COP21 during which remarkable progress was made, focussing on action items to achieve the priorities of The Paris Agreement.
To coincide with the Summit, CCTNE, the principle publication on climate change, launched its COP22 Edition, currently being distributed globally, via its captive audience network.
Businesses and in particular, CCTNE’s industry partners, are already leading the way, encouraged by the framework that the Paris Agreement has given them.
Ahead of the Summit, Harry Verhaar, Head of Global Public & Government Affairs at Philips Lighting said, “In terms of reducing carbon emissions, greater energy efficiency could deliver fully two-thirds of what needs to be done to meet the bold commitments agreed at COP21 in Paris.”
From a sustainable mobility perspective, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have advocated that “Today, more than ever, addressing successfully the complexities of the global market requires continuous improvements in operational efficiency and the sustainability of processes.”
CCTNE is calling on our government stakeholders to stimulate and encourage more of this innovation. Because now we “know a great deal of what needs to be done and see a level of momentum which, if maintained, can carry the planet and its people across the winning tape.” Patricia Espinosa, UNFCCC Executive Secretary.
