Investing in Reversing: Sustainable Finance Strategies Against Climate Change
At the Paris Climate Conference (COP21), held in December 2015, 195 countries approved the first global binding agreement on climate, whose purpose is to keep an increase in the global mean temperature well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and continue to work to limit that temperature increase even further to 1.5°C. The governments agreed to report regularly on the reduction of emissions every five years.
