"This rigorous assessment underlines that the world can realise a green economy and make the transition to a low carbon economy. It also underlines the crucial importance of the international community reaching a deal on a new climate agreement at the climate convention meeting in Copenhagen in 2009. This partnership between GeSI (convened under UNEP) and The Climate Group, with analytical support from McKinsey, gives us yet another platform for action and yet another compelling reason for reasoned optimism."
