Green Media Henley Media Group Ltd Trans-World House, 100 City Road London, EC1Y 2BP, UK Tel: +44 (0)207 871 0173 Fax: +44 (0)207 871 0101 www.climateactionprogramme.org In June 1992, at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was signed by 154 nations. Members of the Framework have been meeting annually since 1995 at the Conference of the Parties (COP) and this has paved the way for legally binding agreements to be reached. Now in its 18th session, the 2012 COP brings us to the Middle East for the first time. COP18 in Doha, Qatar is the perfect opportunity to reignite topics including climate change policy, the green economy, renewable energy, the use of fossil fuels and the original ambition of the COP process of stabilising the levels of greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere. Against this backdrop, Green Media publishes Climate Action in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The annual publication and website promote global business sustainability and are officially supported by UN Global Compact, Carbon Disclosure Project, ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, World Green Building Council, Stakeholder Forum and nrg4SD. After being launched in Bali for COP13, we now present the 6th edition of Climate Action; a platform for governments, industry, international opinion leaders, distinguished academics and environmentalists to debate the business case for climate change solutions. The publication provides concrete steps that both governments and businesses can take to reduce carbon footprints through ongoing dialogue and dedicated actions. Designed to bring to light the key issues in the climate change dialogue, Climate Action aims to stimulate debate and encourage consensus on the environmental issues that so urgently need action. We hope you find it a stimulating read.
