The television cameras have been turned off. The delegations have returned home. Now it's time to put the Glasgow Climate Pact into action.
After two weeks of negotiations at COP 26, 197 countries agreed on the first climate deal to explicitly commit to reducing the use of coal. The resolution also encourages nations to take bolder steps to cut emissions and includes a commitment for more climate finance to help developing countries to adapt to the impacts of climate change. More than 140 countries have pledged to reach net-zero emissions, while over 100 nations have promised to reverse deforestation by 2030.
With the conference over, we have entered what will likely prove to be a critical period: countries now have to follow through on their commitments to mitigate climate change and keep a 1.5 °C temperature rise within reach. As always, REMONDIS stands ready to help wherever we can.
In this unique period in history when the pandemic is leaving its mark, I would like to send my sincere thanks to our employees, customers and partners for their cooperation and for walking alongside as we navigate these challenging times. With the Advent season upon us, I would like to take this opportunity to extend season's greetings to all of our employees, customers and business partners. Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and a healthy and prosperous 2022!
