Josh Frydenberg quotes

Jun 01 2017

We reiterate our full commitment to the Paris Accord. We believe that the targets we agreed to, the 26% to 28% reduction in emissions by 2030 on 2005 levels are reasonable, are achievable. I do believe that it is still a very meaningful agreement. You have more than 190 countries that signed on, and in record time, 146 countries have ratified. So even without the US, around 70% of the world's emissions are covered by that agreement.feedback
