Future of the Environment

The climate summit I hosted in September last year has created new political momentum. I’m very encouraged that the European Union has taken the far-reaching, visionary leadership decision to cut 40% of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030; and that China and the US have agreed a very significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
