G7 found climate club
Notwithstanding the Russian war of aggression and its consequences, the G7 countries are not losing sight of other global challenges. On Monday, the G7 heads of state and government adopted a resolution to establish a climate club in order to tackle climate change. The concept of an open, collaborative international club originated in an initiative presented by Germany at the G7 summit in Elmau in June after which much effort was put into developing the concept.
The G7 countries are inviting interested countries with ambitious climate policies to join the so-called Club 2023 and to contribute to its development. At their sixth meeting under the German presidency, the G7 agreed on a common set of rules – the so-called “Terms of Reference”, which form the basis for the further expansion of the climate club in the coming year as well as its initial implementation phase. Together with the International Energy Agency (IEA), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) will now set up an interim secretariat for the climate club. According to Scholz, many partners at the Climate Change Conference in Sharm-El-Sheikh showed great interest in this club.
Japan will assume the G7 Presidency on 1 January 2023 and Federal Chancellor Scholz expressed his conviction that they will continue to pursue the initiatives introduced this year with great commitment . The plan is to expand the climate club to include other important states in the coming year….Monday, 12 December 2022
