The Agreement, which was adopted by nations at COP21 in 2015 and came into force less than 12 months later, aims to keep a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees C and, better, no higher than 1.5 degrees C.
Itaipu will be the only Latin American company that will be a UN Climate Change partner at the conference. The partnership exists in recognition of the company’s various actions for the production of clean and renewable energy, water security, biodiversity conservation and sustainable development in its area of influence.
These projects will be presented in detail at the UN Climate Change’s Pavilion in Bonn. Additionally, in partnership with the UN, Itaipu will also promote two side events: “How the hydroelectric generation sector can lead sustainable development in a changing environment,” on 10 November (Energy Day) and “Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity,” on 12 November (Water Day).
