"World leaders have pledged to clamp down on pollution, embrace
sustainable economic systems and eliminate the dumping of plastic waste
in oceans by the middle of the century as part of “meaningful action” to
halt the destruction of nature on Earth.
Emmanuel Macron, Angela Merkel, Justin Trudeau, Jacinda Ardern and Boris
Johnson are among 64 leaders from five continents warning that humanity
is in a state of planetary emergency due to the climate crisis and the
rampant destruction of life-sustaining ecosystems. To restore the
balance with nature, governments and the European Union have made a
10-point pledge to counteract the damage to systems that underpin human
health and wellbeing.
The commitments include a renewed effort to reduce deforestation, halt
unsustainable fishing practices, eliminate environmentally harmful
subsidies and begin the transition to sustainable food production
systems and a circular economy over the next decade. The leaders
describe the pledge as a “turning point” by which future generations
will judge their willingness to act on environmental destruction."
