Sustainability is not fashion… It is a guarantee of the future!
In a month when 50 world leaders discuss the present and the future of the planet at the 25th United Nations Climate Change conference (COP25) in Madrid, there is an urgent alert for sustainability.
The conference is about a month from the entry into force of the Paris Agreement, scheduled for 2020, when signatory countries must come forward with concrete measures to limit global warming and set new targets to contain their carbon emissions.
A challenge that does not seem easy, given that “The main issuing countries are not yet meeting the objectives they set. It is crucial to bring the world in line with what the scientific community has defined as our goals and these are: no more than 1.5 degrees of temperature growth by the end of the century, carbon neutrality in 2050 and reduction of carbon emissions. 45% compared to 2010 by 2030 “, underlines António Guterres.
On the science side, the sense of emergency is clear: the latest reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change point to an already irreversible scenario of rising global temperatures, rising sea levels and a cascade of combined effects that mean environmental disasters in the world. decades to come.
