Ceres’ statement in response to the Chilean government’s decision not to host COP25 in DecemberCeres
In response to the Chilean government’s announcement that it would withdraw from hosting COP25 in December, Ceres’ CEO and President Mindy Lubber said:
“The Chilean government’s decision to withdraw from hosting COP25 raises concerns for all who are focused on ensuring strong, swift and just global action to tackle the climate crisis. The world needs urgent, coordinated, and collective action across global governments and sectors of the economy in order to put us on a pathway to reach net-zero carbon emissions, limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius, and avoid the most catastrophic impacts of climate change. That action must incorporate the needs and concerns of those most vulnerable to the climate crisis and to the economic shifts required to address it. We support the people of Chile and thank everyone who has worked tirelessly to advance a productive and successful COP25.
“We look forward to further guidance from the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change secretariat on an updated COP25 plan that will enable ongoing progress toward implementation of the Paris Agreement, with the support of investors, companies and civil society who are calling for action at the pace and scale the climate crisis requires.”All Press Releases
