UK ratifies Paris Climate Agreement


The government announced on Friday 18 November that the Paris Climate Agreement had been ratified by the UK. The confirmation came during COP22 in Marrakesh, where talks focused on the implementation of the agreement. Business and energy secretary Greg Clark said: “The Paris Agreement sends a clear signal that cutting emissions globally will not only help countries respond to the impact of climate change, but it is also compatible with economic growth. As we ratify this landmark agreement, we look ahead to continuing our leadership on climate action and ensuring that British business continues to play a key role in this new global low-carbon economy. It will benefit the UK while we implement our industrial strategy to deliver the economy that works for all.”
