HE Antony Phillipson stated: ‘We also need to see all countries start taking action now to actually deliver the ambitious emissions reductions target they will need to set themselves in 2015.
This is where green growth and low carbon economic development … will have a vital role to play. Green growth will not just help countries deliver a lower emissions trajectory, it will help them do so in a way which is consistent with continued, sustainable economic growth.
It will also help avoid the huge costs that unabated climate change will impose.’
