EcoSecurities Stakeholder Survey Finds Stakeholders Continue to Back International Efforts to Reduce Climate Change with Set Emissions Targets
November 2007 - The EcoSecurities’ Global Consulting Group conducted a stakeholder survey in early 2007 to gauge carbon market sentiments with regard to post-2012 international climate change policy. The majority of respondents stated their support of maintaining absolute emission targets, as found in the Kyoto Protocol. They also continued to see Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) as an important and necessary component of an emissions reduction plan with binding targets. Two thirds of the respondents believed that the international community would be able to reach an agreement so as to prevent an interruption between the Kyoto protocol commitments and those of the post-2012 climate change regime.
