Climate Summit Madrid

The climate summit in Madrid started on the 2nd of December 2020. Hopefully the countries will be able to come to an agreement on the guidelines for climate measures, so that the Paris Agreement can be implemented effectively.

If we want to reach the Paris objectives in 2030 and 2050, CO2 emissions must be reduced drastically. When the Rutte III cabinet took office, DSGC had already insisted on proactive climate diplomacy aimed at introducing an effective international system for CO2 pricing. DSGC also asked the cabinet to speed up the implementation of the Paris Agreement in our country.

All members of the DSGC (eight Dutch multinationals) have formulated objectives for reducing their own CO2 emissions and achieving a climate neutral position. Besides, they work with an internal price for CO2. The eight Dutch multinationals are also developing methods for mapping transparent climate-related risks and CO2 emissions.
