    Climate change mitigation: We must do more

    Countries everywhere have committed to fighting climate change but many are still subsidising fossil fuels, investing little in green technologies, failing to put a realistic price on carbon, and allowing transport emissions to grow. Much more can and should be done.

    Higher price on carbon needed to effectively tackle climate change

    OECD urges efforts to better price carbon as new analysis finds that 90% of CO2-emissions are priced below EUR 30 per tonne, a low-end estimate of climate damage, and 60% are not priced at all. Effective Carbon Rates in the OECD and Selected Partner Economies calculates effective carbon rates (ECR) on CO2-emissions from energy use for 41 countries which together use 80% of global emissions.

    Remarks at GLOBE COP21 Legislators Summit

    Continuing down the carbon path will only lead us to a more vulnerable world; a world where rising risk from climate disaster and its financial liabilities are increasingly tied to out-of-date infrastructure, especially in those places least equipped to cope. I therefore applaud Globe’s emphasis on a coordinated approach to the 2015 agenda.
