On November 18, the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) ended in Egypt without much significant progress.
With more than 200 countries attending this edition, progress has been made on some fundamental points, but others remain at a standstill.
The main proposals and objectives were as follows:
to achieve greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions and increase funding for countries most affected by the impacts of climate change.
Countries representing more than half of the world's GDP established an action plan to accelerate decarbonization through progress in key sectors such as energy, transportation and agriculture.
EU announces ambitious plan to reduce emissions by 57% by 2030
On the COP27 stage , European Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans stated that "progress must be made to keep the 1.5ºC objective alive" in order to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
The 27 countries of the European Union have agreed on a series of policies to increase emissions reductions from 55% to 57% by 2030 .
This increased ambition will be achieved through energy savings and greater investment in renewable energy, Timmermans said.
Focus on transportation
Currently, transportation accounts for 10% of global gas emissions.
For this reason, special attention has been paid to the urgency of its rapid decarbonization.
One of the measures unveiled at this edition was the presentation of the Accelerating to Zero Net Emissions Coalition (A2Z) already agreed at the previous COP26.
This Coalition brings together countries, regions, institutions and companies working and striving to achieve carbon neutrality .
EccoFreight leading the change that transportation needs since 2014.
Since our inception in 2014, it has been clear to us that both generating environmental awareness and reducing CO2 was the way forward to ensure the future of our planet.
Thanks to the combination of sustainability with the most advanced technology, we were able to develop Eccologistics360: a powerful logistics tool specialized in the calculation and reduction of CO2 emissions in the transport of goods.
With these advances, we are doing our bit to achieve net zero emissions by 2030.
