The debate about the future of the climate comes to Madrid
The Conference of the Parties (COP) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change brings together once a year all the signatory countries to the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement, the two major international treaties that reflect the global commitment to fighting climate change.
COP25 will be held in Madrid from 2 to 13 December under the chairmanship of Chile. Its main objective is to prepare the ground for the more than 200 participating countries to present their individual and collective contributions to this fight. In addition to reviewing the ambitions of the countries and adjusting them to the levels required by the Paris Agreement, the summit will attempt to get the Parties to increase their climate-related ambitions and achieve the target set for global climate funding.
Endesa and Enel at COP25
At Endesa and Enel we have a firm commitment to energy transition and we have publicly committed ourselves to UN SDG 13, to make 100% of our energy mix carbon-free by 2050, with a roadmap that sets ambitious targets for 2020, 2030 and 2040.
This is why we wanted to be part of the COP25 events, not only by collaborating with the organizers as one of the main sponsors, but also as an active participant in the parallel activities and government meetings that will take place within this framework. During these days, we will cooperate with bodies, governments and observers to ensure that the Madrid Conference of the Parties achieves its objectives.
