Climate Solutions Businesses Speak on Concrete Action in Cancún
Technology, Markets and REDD: 3 Key Areas Prime for Progress
Cancún, México—Concrete, constructive outcomes are possible at COP-16. This was the key message delivered by the Climate Solutions Business Coalition, which represents billions of dollars in private capital in the clean energy sector, investor community, and carbon markets, at a press conference today in the Moon Palace, site of the UN climate change negotiations.
Speaking at the press conference were Miles Austin, Director, Carbon Markets & Investors Association, Henry Derwent, President & CEO, International Emissions Trading Association, Rémi Gruet, Regulatory Affairs Advisor, Global Wind Energy Council, and Lisa Jacobson, President, Business Council for Sustainable Energy.
Together, they urged the Parties to set aside their “nothing is agreed until everything is agreed” mindset and take actionable decisions in Cancún on critical issues, including technology, markets, REDD+, and capacity-building.
A video of the full press conference is available here on the UNFCCC website.
