Climate negotiations COP24: The time for global action is now
On 3 December, global climate negotiations will start in Katowice, Poland (Conference of the Parties 24). COP24 is seen as the most important climate conference since the landmark Paris Agreement was agreed three years ago. Our expectations from COP24 are available here.
BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer said: “The time for global action is now. Science shows that climate change is happening and we have seen 18 out of the last 20 years to be the warmest years on record. Katowice will be decisive to make further steps in the fight against climate change and companies across Europe are active to reduce emissions and provide innovative solutions. COP24 must deliver results on several fronts. Expectations are high. Without strong political will from all sides, it will not deliver on those expectations. We call on all major economies, in particular the US, China, India and Japan to deliver with the EU on this ambitious agenda.”
