KPMG publishes briefing on the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development
In preparation for Rio+20 KPMG has prepared “Sustainable Insight Return to Rio: Briefing on the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development”, to give an overview of the main issues that will be discussed in Rio during the conference and some practical information for businesses planning to be ‘'on the ground” in Rio.
Yvo de Boer, KPMG’s Special Global Advisor on Climate Change and Sustainability, says there is no question that short-term thinking and the global economic turmoil have created strong headwinds for Rio+20, limiting - but not preventing - the ability to deliver concrete and binding outcomes.
The report gives a perspective on the likely outcomes from the Summit and concludes that while binding agreements may be off the table, the Summit can help reinforce and catalyse a growing trend towards sustainable development. And most of all, help build momentum and opportunities towards a green economy.
