G19 confirms its commitment for the implementation of the Paris Agreement

In reaction to the outcome of the G20 summit that has taken place on 7-8 July in Germany, Wendel Trio, Director of Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe said:

“We welcome the continued commitment of our leaders to the Paris Agreement. The adoption of the Climate and Energy Action Plan is a clear indication that the world’s largest economies are well aware that action is urgently needed to make the zero carbon transition happen.
The next step is obviously to move from commitment to action, by raising the level of ambition of the Paris pledges, phasing out fossil fuel subsidies by 2020 and providing support to those most vulnerable to climate change impacts.”
