Monaco receives the “Ray of the Day” at Doha

In line of the conference of climate change, which was held in Doha from November 28th to December 8th 2012, the Principality of Monaco was honoured to receive the ray of the day assigned by the Non Governmental Organisation “Climate Action Network” (CAN).

Since the negotiations in 1999 in Germany, Bonn, this organisation raises awareness amongst the participants of climate change conferences, assigning “fossil of the day” (sort of red cards) to countries whose behaviour is less beneficial in the fight against climate change. That NGO rarely assigns countries with the “Ray of the Day” for their exemplary campaigns in favour of climate.

In this context, Monaco has received, on December 3rd 2012, the “Ray of the Day” for the announcement to reduce the Principality’s emissions of green house gases by 30% in 2020.

In 2010, the CO²-emissions of Monaco have been reduced by 19% in comparison to 1990.

The NGO stated that the conference needs such fine examples in order to encourage the other countries to follow this path.
