Post COP 21 – Success or Failure?

February 2016

The close of COP 21 in Paris brought together 195 Nations to set the stage for limiting temperature rise in an historic agreement. Beyond curbing temperature rise, the agreement aims to strengthen the ability to deal with the impacts associated with climate change. The agreement sets a long-term direction with countries peaking their emissions as soon as possible and continuing to submit action plans on climate that detail their future objectives in an effort to effectively address the issue. Sam Pickering, Senior Director of Source8, and Begüm Kürkçü, Sustainability Manager at Mitie, provide their commentary on both the upside and downside of this important agreement. Sam and Begüm are both based in London.
