The following is a message from the Environmental Management Consultants (EMC) on the occasion of Earth Day 2020:
Environmental Management Consultants (EMC) joins the international community in celebrating Earth Day 2020 under the theme Climate Action.
The impacts of climate change are being felt globally, and with increasing intensity. Urgent action is needed to mitigate and adapt to these impacts, protect our natural systems and biodiversity and secure the future of humanity.
As we move to revamp our economies in a post COVID 19 scenario, it will be even more important to ensure that we adopt a sustainable development model, one which embraces a green economy approach, including forest conservation and renewable energy. Some countries, including Guyana through its Low Carbon Development Strategy and Partnership with the Kingdom of Norway, have already provided valuable lessons and experiences in this regard.
Let us remain committed to playing our part to address climate change and protect nature. Our future depends on the actions we take today.
