193 Parties agreed to the Paris Agreement at COP21 last year. This agreement strengthened the global response to the threat of climate change, promising to keep the global temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius.
Insta-famous canals, dazzling dance scenes, and centuries worth of cultural heritage. Amsterdam is a city dear to many wanderers of the world. And we've had the honor to call it our home for the past two years.
Earlier this year, along with 16 other municipalities, Rotterdam put together a comprehensive tender for adding more charging stations to the streets: an extension of up to 4000 new charging points for electric cars in its entire concession area, of which 1800 in the City of Rotterdam.
The city of Amsterdam has awarded EV-Box with a contract to expand and operate its EV charging stations in collaboration with Nuon-Heijmans. A winning combination, which will help the municipality to rapidly increase the number of charging stations and reach its goal of 4.000 charging points by 2018
The agreement in Paris concluded what was not achieved in Copenhagen in 2009. Representatives from 195 nations agreed to hold themselves responsible reducing CO2 emissions to “well below” 2 degrees Celsius above pre-Industrial revolution levels, and to strive for 1.5 degrees if attainable.
More than 30,000 people have gathered in Paris for the COP21 climate negotiations. 140+ world-leaders, NGO’s, national governments and business leaders will try to form an agreement to alter/slow down climate change.
