Climate change is a global challenge that requires global actions. BusinessEurope is committed to and aware of the challenges that climate change presents as well as the impacts of human activities. This is why we highly welcomed the Paris Agreement, which reflects the long-term objective of limiting global warming below 2°C.
The Paris Agreement is the single most important tool in providing clarity on the direction that society must take to tackle climate change. It is equally important to provide a global level playing field, as reaching the Paris Agreement requires all countries (especially major economies) to make significant efforts to bring down emissions. BusinessEurope is fully committed to implementation of the Agreement, and the companies it represents invest billions in low-carbon innovation, as well as in the development and deployment of low-carbon technologies for the future.
