Announcement: Climate Mundial joins UN’s Climate Neutral Now initiative

Climate Mundial is proud to announce that it has become a supporter of the Climate Neutral Now initiative.

Climate Mundial is a climate finance and sustainable development firm, whose mission is to assist clients develop and finance renewable energy, carbon mitigation and climate adaptation projects in developing countries.

Climate Neutral Now seeks to inspire individuals and organisations and to recognise them for their contribution to climate change action, becoming part of the momentum created by the global climate agreement achieved in Paris last December.

As a company with profound understanding of the challenge that climate change represents and the opportunities that our society has to respond to that challenge and turn it into an opportunity, Climate Mundial has committed to contribute to global climate neutrality by reducing its own greenhouse gas emissions and compensating the remaining emissions with UN-certified climate credits.

“Climate Neutral Now addresses the core of the Paris Agreement promise: a climate neutral society by mid-century, to ensure that we stay below the 2 degrees Celsius target. The initiative encourages organisations and individuals to do more, now, to voluntarily contribute to reaching that goal. Climate Mundial is honoured to support such action”, said Daniel Rossetto, Managing Director of the company.

Mr. Rossetto also called for organisations of all types and individuals to support the initiative, which is led by the UNFCCC secretariat. “Everyone can contribute through their own action at home, and by supporting credible, valuable emission reduction projects that also promote sustainable development in developing countries”, he said.

News: American Carbon Market Seen as Winner With China Accord

“A China-U.S. climate deal that involves the former committing to capping emissions is a breakthrough,” Daniel Rossetto, managing director of Climate Mundial Ltd. in London, which provides advice on emissions trading, said by e-mail. “Opponents to cap and trade in the U.S. have always been safe in quoting inaction by China as a reason for blocking cap and trade. If China follows through on today’s commitment, that pre-condition no longer holds.”
