Looking ahead to 2016: Cautious optimism
null2015 was a year of both new as well as expanded commitments ranging from publication of the Papal Encyclical, Laudato Si, promulgation of the Obama Clean Power Plan, adoption of the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals and an agreement on global climate change through the 21st Conference of the Parties of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change. As 2015 was a year of new policy commitments and frameworks, so 2016 will be a time for implementing them and delivering results.

2015 Annual Review Now Available
null

2015 was a consequential year for the development of environmental and sustainability policies in our lifetimes. The release of the Papal Encyclical, adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and decisions at COP21 in Paris have re-defined national and global expectations and policy frameworks for global companies and their stakeholders. WEC’s contributions—through convened dialogues, publications, roundtables and on-the-ground implementation of major projects—has mirrored these developments. We are pleased to present the 2015 World Environment Center Annual Review and invite your continuing participation in our initiatives.
