The 12 days of COP21: In numbers

As the Paris climate change conference draws to a close, edie has rounded up the big pledges and initiatives and announcements that have made for a packed two weeks of climate action, with this special edition of our 'sustainability stats' series.

A strong climate agreement could be on the cards, with the draft document shedding pages and global governments and corporations banding together to launch campaigns aimed at thrusting the business landscape into a low-carbon future.

Signatures have been flying around this week and the ink refuses to run dry as companies sign up to unveil action plans and pledge to 100% renewable energy futures.

Meanwhile, investors are mounting increasing pressure on companies to push for clean energy, which has led to some to turn to science to find low carbon solutions.

Whatever the outcome of the final agreement, Paris talks will certainly leave a lasting legacy – the formation of new inteities, from Solar Councils to Construction Alliances, will mean that the world has a new global green presence, hopefully for centuries to come.
