We have joined the Paris Pledge for Action to support the global call for a credible, coherent and unmistakable signal that the Paris Agreement will be implemented and commitments met. As a town that is striving to be recognised as a ‘Green Economy Leader’, we realize that dangerous climate change threatens the ability of future generations to thrive in a peaceful and prosperous world. We also realize that taking strong action to reduce emissions can deliver better growth and sustainable development. Our support for the Paris Pledge for Action affirms our strong commitment to a safe and stable climate in which temperature rise is limited to below 2 degrees Celsius. We urge local businesses, organisations and communities to show their support for strong action on climate change and join the Paris Pledge for Action.
