We are going through a period in which climate change, with its growing repercussions for multiple issue areas, has become one of the most critical agenda items in the world.
In this respect, we, as TUSIAD, espouse, as one of our strategic priorities, the Paris Agreement that represents a key consensus on climate change mitigation.
Awareness for the risks associated with climate change has reached a considerable level not only among governments but also among the business world. In today’s world, there exists the need to resolutely put into perspective an economic transition that centres around climate change mitigation.
Circular economy offers feasible and scalable opportunities for abandoning unsustainable resource consumption patterns of today. Given the climate zone our country is located in, it is imperative to focus on policies that seek to enhance low-carbon development and climate change resilience. In this framework, all stakeholders should work on adjustments that would unravel the potential to integrate the ecosystems and business models of public and private sectors into an energy efficient, low-carbon economy.
With this understanding, we, as TUSIAD, unwaveringly support the process through which Turkey steadfastly develops national policies on climate change mitigation and effectively pursues their implementation.
In this process, we believe it is of utmost importance that initiatives regarding Turkey’s status under the Paris Agreement be resolutely continued with the contribution of all stakeholders.
