The Paris Agreement & The G-7 Summit
Next week the G-7 Summit commences in Taormina, Sicily on May 26th through the 27th with leaders from Japan, United States, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, France and Canada. The Summit’s agenda includes a focus discussion on: Energy and climate change; The Paris Agreement; the role of green finance; energy security; gas markets and renewables.
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt said last Wednesday that Trump will make a decision on whether to stay in the Paris Agreement after he returns from the G-7 summit.
“I think probably after the president gets back from the G-7, and I’m actually attending the G-7 in early June, there will be a decision on Paris. Very important that we make steps there soon,” Pruitt said.
