Unclear position on UN Climate Treaty

InfluenceMap Comment:

Although they mention the role the chemical industry can play, it is unclear if organization is supporting a strong UN Climate Treaty (Twitter, April 2015)

American Chemistry ‏@AmChemistry Apr 30 Watch! How is global #chemical #mfg helping to tackle #ClimateChange? http://ow.ly/MkNmG  https://youtu.be/rUXWspz4_7w  @ICCA_Chem #COP21 9 (links to ICCA video): With COP 21 taking place in Paris from 30 November to 11 December, this year will be crucial for moving the climate change issue forward. At the UN Climate Summit in September 2014, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called for the private sector to drive more action and mobilize political will for a meaningful agreement in 2015. We in the chemical industry have a major role to play since we can provide solutions in many areas such as building climate smart cities, fostering energy generation and storage through new technologies, enhancing energy efficiency in our own processes and within the supply chains.

Supporting UN Climate Treaty

InfluenceMap Comment:

Have stated support for the UN Climate Treaty (American Chemistry Matters, November 2013)

Extract from Source:

The UNFCCC sets an overall framework for intergovernmental efforts to address climate change. The global chemical industry, through the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA), supports efforts to help find sustainable solutions to climate challenges [...] Governments around the world agree that action needs to be taken to enhance sustainability, particularly through increasing energy efficiency over the coming decades. The global chemical industry stands ready to help address these challenges through development and adoption of energy-saving materials and technologies and supportive governmental policies.
