Last month saw Bliink being commissioned by The International Institute for sustainable development to create an animated infographic, which highlights the key arguments for climate change reform:
Last month saw Bliink working with The International Institute for Sustainable Development, helping mark the 17th of March, 2015 – as the day the coalition government called for the elimination of subsidies to fossil fuels. The group – known as the Friends of Fossil Fuel Subsidy Reform – is encouraging other governments to endorse the statement ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference.
- The Sustainable Development Argument: Removing subsidies frees up resources to invest in sustainable development for society (health, education, targeted social welfare systems) and towards low-carbon energy pathways.
- The CO2 Argument: Removing fossil fuel subsidies leads to emissions reductions in a world dealing with the impacts of climate change as fossil fuel subsidies hold us back from a low carbon future and lock us into a high carbon one.
- The Equity Argument: Fossil fuel subsidies are a poor social welfare policy. They are regressive, costly and inefficient for reducing poverty.
We built a comprehensive campaign which supported, educated and engaged those wanting to know more about climate change and its effect to the environment. Bliink & IISD invites all countries, companies and civil society organizations to join us in supporting accelerated action to eliminate inefficient fossil-fuel subsidies in an ambitious and transparent manner as part of a major contribution to climate change mitigation.
