COP21 DISSECTED: WHAT THE OUTCOMES MAY MEAN FOR INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS
History was made in Paris on Saturday night. The COP21 agreement is the first climate deal to commit all countries to cut greenhouse gas emissions.Nearly 200 countries agreed to peak emissions as soon as possible, keep global temperature increase "well below" 2C (3.6F), pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5C and review progress every five years.
Developed countries also agreed to commit $100 billion a year by 2020 to help developing countries cut emissions and adapt to climate change.
The objectives have been set, the next challenge is to turn them into action.
