ACCIONA endorses the Carbon Price Communiqué

11/22/2012

More than one hundred international companies, among them ACCIONA, have endorsed the  Carbon Price Communiqué, presented yesterday in Brussels to the European Union Commissioner for Climate Change, Connie Hedegaard, and ambassadors of EU member states.

More than one hundred international companies, among them ACCIONA, have endorsed the Carbon Price Communiqué, presented on Tuesday, November 20th, in Brussels to the European Union Commissioner for Climate Change, Connie Hedegaard, and ambassadors of EU member states.

The Communiqué calls on politicians to focus their efforts on setting up a clear framework for carbon emissions pricing, with the following guidelines:

  • Make carbon pricing a central part of national policy responses.
  • Work towards the long term objective of a carbon price throughout the global economy.
  • Set sufficient ambition through internationally agreed targets to drive change at a pace commensurate with the 2°C goal.

The document, coordinated by The Prince of Wales's Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change (EUCLG),  with the support of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), the Corporate Leaders Network for Climate Action (CLN) and the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA), appears a week ahead of the start of the 18th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 18), scheduled to take place in Doha (Qatar) from 26 November to 7 December 2012.

This communiqué comes as part of the commitment undertaken by large companies, among them ACCIONA, to drive a determined strategy against climate change. In recent years this commitment has taken the shape of a number of communiqués, namely the Bali, Poznan, Copenhagen and Cancun communiques and the 2°C Challenge Communiqué.
