The Paris Agreement signed on 12 December 2015 is being widely proclaimed as a historic deal that will lead to decarbonisation. The agreement signals a shift to a low carbon, better future.

The agreement will affect numerous sectors including energy, transport, mining, agribusiness, infrastructure and finance.

  • The main pillars of the agreement;
  • The role of carbon markets;
  • How the agreement will be ratified and implemented; and
  • Who is going to pay for it.
