UN Environment : Policy - Business Dialogue (2017 Emissions Gap Report)
31 Oct 2017 -  Business – Policy Dialogue: Can Private Sector & Non-State Players Fill the 70% Gap that Remains Even if All Country Pledge Are Met? — fair proposition?

The eighth edition of the UN Flagship Emissions Gap Report will be launched in Geneva on 31 October, days ahead of the Convening of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 23).

The Emissions Gap Report tracks the policy commitments made by countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and analyses how these policies will translate into emissions reductions through 2030, clearly outlining the emissions gap and what it would take to bridge it. It examines how Government policy and private sector initiatives are key to which way the process evolves.

Recognizing the increasingly important role of non-state actors, Thomson Reuters will present the latest data that tracks actions to lower emissions by companies in the Global 250, along with their value chains— which account for approximately one third of global annual emissions.
