About the Event
The Paris Agreement is the first legally binding international treaty on climate change signed by 196 parties in 2015. Implementation of the Paris Agreement requires economic and social transformation, based on the best available science. The Paris Agreement works on a five-year cycle of increasingly ambitious climate action -- or, ratcheting up -- carried out by countries. Starting from 2020, countries have been submitting their national climate action plans, known as nationally determined contributions (NDCs). In their NDCs, countries communicate actions they will take to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in order to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement. Countries also communicate in their NDCs actions they will take to build resilience to adapt to the impacts of climate change.
In this context, embracing carbon accounting at the individual organizational level is the only logical step. If we do not embrace carbon accounting and do not undertake the necessary steps to reduce our carbon footprint, we cannot fulfill our global aspiration of the Paris Agreement.
At the same time, economic development, resource consumption, and intensity of energy consumption are also directly proportionate. Hence, we have to transition from the linear economy model to the Circular Economy Model.
