“The Regional Council of Emilia Romagna will soon be signing the protocol 'Subnational global climate leadership memorandum of understanding'. We fully embrace the principles of the Protocol, and appreciate the Regional Legislative Assembly’s willingness to get involved in a process to which we have already subscribed, and which has led to the signing of this important document.”

With these words, the President of the Regional Council of Emilia Romagna, Stefano Bonaccini, commented the resolution submitted by 12 councillors of the Italian Democratic Party, which urges the Regional Council to sign the international protocol for emission control known as Under 2 Mou, drawn up in the lead-up to the 21st United Nations Climate Change Conference (Cop21) to be held in Paris from 30th November to 11th December 2015.

“The Regional Council, with the contribution of the Councillor for the Environment Paola Gazzolo, has approved membership of the ‘Under 2 Mou’ Memorandum,” added Bonaccini, “which will be first stipulated on 26th October, at Expo Milano.” The document, presented by the German region of Baden Wurttemberg and the state of California, was upheld and signed by the Italian government on 24th September in New York, and has so far been signed by 43 local government authorities from 19 countries in 5 continents.
