Antonio Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General, talks at a COP25 climate action event that is focused on greener jobs.

According to Guterres, the answer to climate change lies in transforming how we generate our power, design our cities, and manage our land”, but it also requires actions "consistent with making people’s lives better".

Guterres urged governments to commit, businesses to lead and people everywhere to "embrace the transformation that will bring us to a carbon-neutral world by 2050".

Guterres also spoke about "enormous opportunities" that is aligned with the Climate Action for Jobs initiative, which he launched at the conference with Guy Ryder, Director-General of the International Labour Organization (ILO). The Climate Action for Jobs initiative puts job creation and livelihoods at the centre of national climate action plans.

Guterres emphasized the need to "reduce emissions 45 per cent by 2030 from 2010 levels, achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and stabilize global temperature rise at 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century". Read the Entire Article
