CCTNE on COP22 – Transitioning to a Post-Paris World

CCTNE was proud to foster communication between key global stakeholders at this year’s COP22 Summit, which took place in Marrakech, from the 7th – 18th November.

Working closely with our distribution partners, Gold Key Media, we created a bespoke distribution programme to ensure high levels of visibility at the Summit, with copies placed into delegate hotels in Marrakech such as the Four Seasons and Kenzi Club Agdal Medina (please click here for press release), as well as key outbound airline hubs internationally, targeting travelling delegations bound for Morocco, such as London, New York, and Paris.

Additionally, Climate Change – The New Economy was displayed in Eurostar lounges in London, Paris and Brussels, as well at the Summit itself.

Following the successful hard-copy distribution, CCTNE is continuing to promote the COP22 Edition through its on-line channels, via our website and Twitter page.

CCTNE would like to bestow thanks to the dedicated and supportive teams at: Baleen Filters, BillerudKorsnäs, City Developments Limited, EnerNOC, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Global Thermostat, Jones Lang Lasalle, Konica Minolta, Philips, Phoenix Design Aid, Terrawatt Initiative, UPS and Voith.

Businesses and in particular, CCTNE’s industry partners, are already leading the way, encouraged by the clear framework that the Paris Agreement and Marrakech Proclamation has given them.

The recent election had in fact a galvanizing reaction on COP stakeholders, “energizing the likes of China and the vulnerable countries to rally round and deepen their shared endeavour to get off fossil fuels” (Liz Gallagher, Senior associate, E3G climate consultancy)

Multi-billion and multi-million dollar packages of support for clean technologies; building capacity to report on climate action plans, and initiatives for boosting water and food security in developing countries were also among the many new announcements and initiatives launched.

Meanwhile governments set a rapid deadline of 2018 to complete the rule book for operationalizing the Paris Agreement to ensure confidence, cooperation and its success over the years and decades to come.

Businesses, investors, cities and local governments also issued new climate change commitments, adding to the thousands announced in the run up to the Paris climate conference last year.

Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), said, “The landmark Paris Agreement set the course and the destination for global climate action. Here in Marrakech, governments underlined that this shift is now urgent, irreversible and unstoppable”.

This new era of implementation and action for climate and for sustainable development was captured in the Marrakech Action Proclamation.
