Pembina Institute available for comment at COP24 - UN Climate Change conference in Poland

Dec. 3, 2018

KATOWICE, POLAND — Isabelle Turcotte, federal policy director, and Binnu Jeyakumar, clean energy director at the Pembina Institute will be attending the COP24 climate conference in Katowice, Poland, and will be available for comment.

This year’s negotiations are imperative to spur the Paris Agreement to action. Coming out of the conference, signatory jurisdictions should agree to a rulebook implementing the Agreement.

A big focus in this year’s conference will be the global transition away from coal-fired power, paired with a just transition for workers. Katowice is in a coal mining region, and offers a unique opportunity to talk about just transition on a global stage.

Isabelle Turcotte will be attending the conference from December 1-16, and can speak to the conference’s development and its implications for climate action in Canada.

Binnu Jeyakumar will be attending the conference from December 8-15, and can speak to events and developments relating to coal phase-out and just transition.
