Paper Excellence is one of the industry leaders that joined the Action Declaration on Climate Policy Engagement in support of governments to address climate change. The initiative was developed by Corporate Knights and Global 100 Council COP27.
The Action Declaration outlines how industry in the movement to decarbonize the economy will support ambitious action to close the say-do gap on countries’ emission reduction by:
- supporting climate change actions aligned with the Paris Agreement when engaging with policymakers;
- working with their major industry/trade associations to advance alignment with the Paris Agreement; and
- monitoring and disclosing climate policy alignment for their companies and their major industry/trade associations.
On No. 8, Corporate Knights hosted an official launch of the Action Declaration at COP27, where they publicly released the names of the signatories as part of the event panel presentation.
