What can we expect from the 2015 Paris Climate Conference?
Posted on November 4, 2015
In the next few weeks the conference on UN energy and climate change known as COP21/CMP11 will be taking place in the city of Paris. The event is taking place from 30th November to 11th December and is crucial in achieving a new international agreement on combating climate change.
There is now a sense of urgency to create a plan for reducing our carbon emissions. This conference is particularly important as it is the first time a universal legally binding agreement is aimed at being reached in order for a transition into low carbon societies and economies in order to limit global warming to below 2°C.
Some of the speakers involved have stressed that there is no alternative and that everyone should be committed to reducing green house gas emissions . There are also many ways for us all to make a difference, such as making the switch to LED lighting.
By mid-December there will hopefully be a plan in place, with the stakes being so high, do you think this conference will be a success in creating a universal agreement to combating climate change?
What do you think their plan should be?
Is the lighting industry going to change bonfire night?
