Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
Mexico’s historic new climate change legislation could make Mexico the second country in the world to pass comprehensive national climate change legislation. An Abt Associates-led project has played a key role in the legislation. The General Law on Climate Change aims to reduce the country’s emissions by 30 percent below current levels by 2020, and 50 percent below 2000 levels by 2050, if developed countries provide technological and financial resources. As part of the law, mandatory emissions reporting and a national emissions registry are required.
