Paris Agreement enters into force!
On November 4th the Paris Agreement comes into force. The two key thresholds - 55 countries, 55% of emissions - needed for the Paris Climate Change Agreement to become legal reality have now been met.
94 Countries have ratified it, covering over 65% of global greenhouse gas emissions. These countries range from the largest to the smallest producers of greenhouse gases and from the most powerful nations to the most vulnerable. All agreed to act to limit the rise in global temperatures.
Action will now be the imperative! The implementation of the agreement will ensure that the efforts of all sectors of society, from government to business and from investors to citizens, will continue until a sustainable future is secured.
