Mixed on UN Climate Treaty

InfluenceMap Comment:

Appear to support Paris 2015 as a means of delivering a global level playing field in responding to climate change, although there is suggestion they want less ambition from Europe ahead of the treaty. (Website, 2015)

Extract from Source:

The EU has jumped to the negotiations with a very ambitious emissions reduction target. In order to achieve comparable efforts, Paris must enable a global level playing-field, where all major economies commit to the measurement, monitoring, reporting, control and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Supporting UN Climate Treaty

InfluenceMap Comment:

Stated support for the Paris Agreement (BusinessEurope, Report, Future of Europe, January 2017)

Extract from Source:

The Paris Agreement was a major achievement and its speedy ratification highly welcomed by BusinessEurope. However, it is now important that Parties deliver on their promises. If not, it would be a major blow against international efforts to protect our climate. Europe can’t shoulder CO2-reductions that the US or other large economies have committed to reduce. BusinessEurope therefore expects all major economies to stay committed to fighting climate change. Furthermore, it is important that major economies converge their climate ambitions with that of Europe as soon as possible, rather than Europe increasing its ambitions even further. Only by doing this will increased global efforts translate into significant global emission reductions.

Strongly supporting UN Climate Treaty

InfluenceMap Comment:

BusinessEurope is supporting the finalisation of the Paris Rulebook and the continued role of the Talanoa dialogue to increase global climate ambition.  (Position paper, 'Our Expectations from COP24', November 2018)

Extract from Source:

Three years after the landmark global climate agreement in Paris, this year’s COP24 inKatowice will be decisive to make further steps in the fight against climate change. A fewweeks after the release of the IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C, COP24 must not only finalise the “Paris Rulebook”, which sets out the rules and procedures, but also continue the Talanoa Dialogue with a view to enhance global efforts to reduce emissions. Enterprises across Europe stand ready to provide innovative solutions to tackle climate change and reduce emissions.

Strongly supporting UN Climate Treaty

InfluenceMap Comment:

Supporting a strong binding agreement at the Paris negotiation (BusinessEurope, Position Paper, 'On the Road to Paris', June 2015)

Extract from Source:

The stakes for European companies are very high in the run up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC) in Paris in December 2015 (COP21). Decision-makers must seize this opportunity to provide for ambitious global action, committing all parties to a legally-binding agreement, after the missed opportunity to do so in Copenhagen in 2009.
