UN Climate Change Secretariat and Climate Group collaborate to encourage leadership on climate changeListen /
The UN Climate Change Secretariat and the Climate Group on Wednesday announced a strategic partnership which aims to encourage the mutually reinforcing leadership of business and of government at all levels by combining the efforts of their respective global initiatives to help raise awareness: the Climate Group’s “Clean Revolution” campaign and the UN Climate Change Secretariat’s “Momentum for Change” initiative.
Specifically, the two organizations will work together to secure commitment for transformative low carbon action from corporate and government leaders.
The Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Christiana Figueres, says ”We need to show that action on climate change, both adaptation and mitigation, is already happening, on the ground, in real life, where it is making a difference for people and for the environment.
The Momentum for Change initiative, led by the UN Climate Change Secretariat, is designed to create a public platform for raising awareness about broad-ranging mitigation and adaptation actions that are already achieving tangible benefits on the ground.
