Statement on Withdrawal of Climate Neutral Now Video

Statement by the secretariat of UN Climate Change, 30 August 2018:

"We understand and respect the concerns that have been raised with regards to the recent video on the UN Climate Change website to support the re-launched online Platform for Voluntary Cancellation of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs), where all stakeholders can measure their emissions and offset those which cannot be avoided.

This initiative is part of a broader campaign Climate Neutral Now, which engages all stakeholders to reduce carbon emissions and boost climate action with the purpose of meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement. Climate Neutral Now encourages emission reductions at local level, but also recognizes the need to offset until further reductions can be achieved by supporting emission reductions globally."
