Strongly supporting transition of energy mix

InfluenceMap Comment:

Through an initiative, advocating for the removal of fossil fuel subsidies (President signed the "Business proposals in view of a 2015 international climate change agreement at COP 21 in Paris", May 2015)

Extract from Source:

The agreement should lay the foundations for the integration of a carbon pricing system, in all major emitting countries, which: [...] is coordinated with a phasing-out of all existing carbon subsidies [...] We are fully aware that the COP 21 and the 2015 agreement will be an important step towards the low-carbon economy transition.
