    Beyond COP21: Boosting systems innovation for green growth

    The hard work starts now. The Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) to cut emissions submitted by 160 countries – even if fully implemented – do not add up to the level of emissions reduction needed to keep the global average temperature rises below 2 degrees. So how can we close this emissions gap?

    Statement by the OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría on COP21 Agreement

    This is a watershed day for the world and especially heartening for the OECD as one of the first international bodies to call for zero net emissions in the second half of the century, for a price on carbon and for greater efforts to channel finance into the low carbon economy.

    Pathway to a low-carbon economy: Remarks at OECD-University of Cambridge COP21 side event

    The starting point is clear: our economies have been hard-wired around fossil fuels for well over a century. This hard-wiring is evident in our physical infrastructure. Perhaps less obvious, but equally problematic, it is also evident in our policies, regulations and institutions.

    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world; a world where rising risk from climate disaster and its financial liabilities are increasingly tied to out-of-date infrastructure, especially in those places least equipped to cope.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.
