AES-EAS 2020 has joined L’Appel de Paris / the Paris Pledge for Action to support the global call from civil society groups for a credible, coherent and unmistakable signal that the Paris Agreement will be implemented and commitments met, or even better, exceeded.
As civil society groups, we realize that dangerous climate change threatens our ability and the ability of future generations to live and thrive in a peaceful and prosperous world. We also realize that taking strong action to reduce emissions can not only reduce the risks of climate change but also deliver better growth and sustainable development.
Our support for the Paris Pledge for Action affirms our strong commitment to a safe and stable climate in which temperature rise is limited to below 2 degrees Celsius. We urge other civil society groups/ business/ cities/ investors/ regions/ trade unions to show their support for strong action on climate change and join the Paris Pledge for Action.
