Improving the recycling of waste is one of a raft of new commitments 15 global organisations have made at COP24 today to achieve climate neutrality.

Employing more than 50,000 staff, and adding over two million tons of CO2 emissions annually to the climate crisis, the actions of these 15 are both significant, and can inspire others to follow suit.

Well done to the following:

 

  • Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Secretariat
  • Common Markets for Eastern and Southern Africa Secretariat (COMESA)
  • Eastern Africa Development Bank (EADB)
  • Western Africa Development Bank (BOAD)
  • Asian Development Bank (ADB)
  • Pacific Community
  • ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability
  • European Investment Bank (EIB)
  • European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)
  • Southern African Development Community (SADC) Secretariat
  • Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)
  • International Paralympic Committee (IPC)
  • Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE)
  • World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC)

 

Some of them are already making progress, while others are beginning their climate neutrality journey. The ambition here is to build a movement of organisations moving towards climate neutral.
