Investors support stronger action to stay below 2°C
Today, the UN Climate Change Secretariat released a new report assessing the aggregate effect of national commitments to tackle climate change against the agreed goal of limiting global warming to two degrees Celsius above pre industrial levels.
The report finds that while global momentum has definitely accelerated, stronger action is needed if the world is going to limit global warming to 2°C and avoid dangerous climate change.
“Until recently, we were staring down the barrel of a 4 or 5 degree world. Significant progress has been made in the lead up to Paris and countries are waking up to the economic benefits of tackling global warming” said Emma Herd CEO of the Investor Group on Climate Change.
