"The COP21 Paris Agreement: GRI Witnesses This Historic Landmark"

...GRI was present in Paris to witness the intense negotiations leading up to what is now being hailed as the most historic agreement for the future of our planet…Four essential elements for success…Transparency, measuring and reporting are central to this global agreement…Within the agreement, all governments must measure and track the implementation of their Intended National Determined Contributions (INDCs)…The Paris agreement is not only about carbon…Although the main focus is on greenhouse gas mitigation and adaptation, this is embedded within a broad sustainability context, with an eye for common but differentiated responsibilities…The role of business and other non-party actors is more central than in any other UN agreement…GRI welcomes the commitment to finance in the Paris agreement, for nations to build clean, resilient futures…Now that the Paris agreement has been made, the work for us all really begins. Solutions to the climate challenge will require innovations in sustainability…
