WARSAW, Oct. 17 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- The most important task posed for the participants of the forthcoming "Summit on Sectoral Cooperation" is to develop a common position and to identify opportunities for the cooperation of governments and energy-intensive industries to tackle climate change. The Summit, organized by the Ministry of Economy of Poland, will take place on 27-28 November in Warsaw.
The meeting will be attended by representatives of over 20 countries, which are responsible for 80 percent of global CO2 emissions. Ministers for industry and representatives of industries will discuss the best methods of combating climate change. The talks are meant to create new opportunities for cooperation within and between energy intensive sectors in facing the challenge of their own emission. One of the instruments, which can be used for that purpose, is the transfer and application of new, environmentally friendly technologies.
The energy intensive industry will be represented by producers of steel, cement and aluminum, who are responsible for around 11 percent of global CO2 emissions. The meeting will therefore also serve to promote public-private cooperation in the process of designing the climate change policy.
During the discussion the opinions of branch associations will also be taken into account. These include, among others, International Aluminum Institute, which represents more than 80 percent global production of aluminum and the International Iron and Steel Institute (75 percent of global steel production). So far, they have implemented programs, such as "The Aluminum for Future Generations" and "The CO2 Breakthrough", which are examples of already undertaken sectoral initiatives.
The meeting, which is an initiative of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy of Poland, Mr. Waldemar Pawlak, precedes the 14 Conference of Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP14), held on December 1-12 this year in Poznan.
