Commitment to Global Climate Action Rallies in Face of Trump Election

Responding to the conclusion of COP22 in Marrakech:

Nick Mabey, CEO E3G, said:

Countries have shown that they see tackling climate change as a central national interest. In the face of Trump’s election countries including China, Brazil, India and Saudi Arabia were quick to voice their unwavering commitment to climate action. The investment opportunities are simply too great to be missed. The impacts too destructive to be ignored

Camilla Born, Policy Adviser E3G, said:

Paris built a regime that lasts, countries, businesses, investors and cities have accelerated their pursuit of climate action. The possibility of 4 years under a climate skeptical Trump government does not change the fundamentals. The climate will keep on changing and we can only bend the curb if we embrace the low carbon resilient economy
