The climate summit is over
...climate protection isn’t!
The COP24 climate summit in Katowice, Poland, officially ended this weekend. The “back and forth” between delegations eventually led in a final push to a hopeful if not too concrete decision: climate protection should be made an even higher priority. How exactly the Paris Agreement or even the target of 1.5° is to be achieved, along with specific national responsibilities, remains an open question.
We’re sure of this: whether as private individuals, companies, cities or communities, we all need to assume even more responsibility for climate protection. Effective solutions are needed more than ever to lead Europe and our planet into an ecofriendly future!
E.ON is rising to this challenge. We are committing our wide-ranging expertise in every area of the company.
