KLIMAATVERANDERING

Mondiale initiatieven om klimaatverandering tegen te gaan

By Mike Tyler

September 24, 2019 - Overheden en de leiders in de private sector hebben op de klimaattop van de VN in New York initiatieven bekendgemaakt die gericht zijn op het verminderen van emissies die de oorzaak zijn van de opwarming van de Aarde.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres concluded the summit by listing 77 countries that committed to carbon neutrality by 2050, though those countries combined produce far less than half the world’s carbon dioxide emissions.

Seventy nations also pledged to do more to fight climate change, 100 business leaders promised to join the green economy and one-third of the global banking sector signed up to green goals.

“Action by action the tide is turning,” Guterres said. “But we have a long way to go. We are not yet there.”
