(MENAFN- Trend News Agency) DUBAI, UAE, December 1. The UK will lead
international efforts to accelerate the development of renewable
energy, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said, Trend reports.
He spoke at the World Climate Action Summit organized within the
framework of the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties to
the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change - COP28.
"Previous COP meetings saw the globe make lofty pledges to limit
global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. But the era of promises is
over; the age of action has arrived. We know that the technology
and ingenuity required to protect the world are available to us,
from the strong offshore wind farms that meet the demands of the
United Kingdom to solar electricity in Africa," he said.
According to Sunak, moving to zero emissions will increase human
security and make people richer.
"It should deliver benefits rather than burden ordinary
families. Internally, the UK is leading in making realistic,
long-term decisions, and at COP28, we will lead international
efforts to safeguard the planet's forests, accelerate renewable
energy development, and realize the full potential of private
investment," he said.
