“We are the first manufacturers in Bangladesh to join the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) and we are focusing on the climate action in line with the goals established by the Paris Agreement of 2015.
The science is clear. Climate change is happening fast. We pledge to limit our Green House Gas (GHG) emissions and support the world, aiming to reach climate neutrality by 2050.”
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is an international environmental treaty, which entered in to force on 21st March 1994, having being ratified by a sufficient number of countries. The ultimate objective of the convention is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system.
The parties to the convention have met annually from 1995 in Conferences of the Parties (COP) to assess progress in dealing with climate change. In 1997, the Kyoto Protocol was concluded and established legally binding obligations for developed countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in the period 2008–2012. The 2010 United Nations Climate Change Conference produced an agreement stating that future global warming should be limited to below 2.0°C relative to the pre-industrial level. In 2015 the Paris Agreement was adopted, governing emission reductions as of 2020 through commitments of countries in Nationally Determined Contributions, lowering the target to 1.5°C. The Paris Agreement went into effect November 4th, 2016.
