Interserve supports the COP21 global climate agreement

Interserve fully supports the global climate agreement reached at the 21st meeting of the Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21) in Paris.

COP-Nov2015-WEBThe historic agreement requires developed and developing countries to limit their emissions to relatively safe levels of 2°C with an aspiration of 1.5°C in a bid to keep global warming below 2°C.

The agreement reached in Paris by ministers from 196 countries sends a clear signal that everyone must play their part – countries, cities, businesses, investors and individuals.

Tim Haywood, Interserve’s Group Finance Director and Head of Sustainability, said: “We are delighted that a deal to unite all the world’s nations in a single agreement to tackle climate change for the first time has been reached. This agreement represents a historic new beginning and provides the long-term stability and focus that we and our customers need to increase our investment in low carbon technologies to ensure the aims of COP21 are met.”

The Paris agreement is the first step on a long road and we will continue to play our part, showing that a big, global business can cut its carbon impact while delivering financial growth.”
