In Discussion On The ‘Resolve Of Cities Around The World’ For Battling Climate Change
Dailycsr.com – 20 April 2017 – On the 20th March of 2017, the “C40 President of the Board, Co-Chair of the Global Covenant of Mayors, and U.N. Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change”, Michael R. Bloomberg and the “C40 Chair, Global Covenant of Mayors Board Member and Mayor of Paris”, Mayor Anne Hidalgo, met up in the city, whereby the duo discussed about the cities’ progress made in the respect to “climate change” issues.
 
The topics of discussion included the steps taken by the Unites States to fight climate change. The leadership of President Hollande has a crucial role that secured the “Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change”. Under the said agreement, for the first time ever, all the countries were united for a “common cause” by undertaking “ambitious efforts” in the combat against climate change.
 
In the words of Mr. Bloomberg:
“I communicated to President Hollande that American cities, states and businesses will deliver the U.S. commitment to the Paris Agreement. Mayor Hidalgo and I discussed with President Hollande the resolve of cities around the world to accelerate progress and fulfill the diplomatic commitments their nations made – even as the global political winds have shifted over the past year. In the U.S., action by state and local governments and businesses has replaced half the country’s coal-fired power production with cleaner forms of energy and put the country on an irreversible path to meet our Paris commitment -- irrespective of future national policies.”
