EU electricity industry wants strong climate change agreement


 

This year’s climate summit in Paris must demonstrate a “clear commitment” to long-term action on cutting emissions, industry association Eurelectric has said. In a paper published on Wednesday 16 September, the industry association said that an inclusive rules-based agreement that covered mitigation, adaptation and finance would provide the necessary predictability and certainty for all public and private actors. The paper further argued that the agreement would require a robust transparency and accountability framework, saying that this would be essential in order to progressively assess whether countries were on track to meet their commitments.
