Countries, companies mobilize around carbon pricing ahead of UN summit

NEW YORK (Reuters) The World Bank said Monday that 73 national and 11 regional governments and some 1,000 companies will join forces to push for policies setting a price on carbon emissions to encourage a shift to cleaner energy technologies. The announcement aims to build momentum for a highprofile UN summit on climate change on Tuesday that Secretary General Ban Kimoon hopes will mobilize governments and the private sector to make bold commitments to address climate change. The World Bank and United Nations have been strong advocates for policies that shift the responsibility to polluters to pay for carbon emissions #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico
