Climate change

The reality of climate change is undeniable with clear evidence of anthropogenic emissions reaching tipping points. It is imperative to take immediate action to mitigate the impacts of climate change and reduce emissions. Our beliefs:

  1. It's crucial to intensify commitment both nationally and globally to the objectives of the Paris Agreement in order to mitigate impacts of climate change. From governments, and domestic and international public and the private sector.
  2. To achieve sustainable development targets, it's essential to ensure access to affordable and clean energy, access to clean water, equality, nutrition, improve infrastructure, health, reduce emissions and increase sequestration all considering how economic growth impacts sustainable development.
  3. As the energy sector moves towards decarbonization and as renewable electrification paces quicken in the upcoming years, there will be an unparalleled surge in demand for renewable energy technologies. This transition needs to be supported.
  4. There's an urgent need to bolster worldwide innovation and initiatives aimed at enhancing energy efficiency, promoting the creation and utilization of low-emission and negative-emission technologies, and adapting to climate change impacts.
  5. All sectors in the economy need to participate in meeting the objectives of the Paris Agreement with integrity and accountability, relying on internal actions and external actions.
  6. Governmental policies prompting immediate action must be set forth equitably to tackle competitiveness issues and attain abatement at the lowest possible cost and where needed.
  7. In order to reach net-zero, sequestration of carbon needs to be accelerated relying on both nature-based processes as well as induced by technology.
