That CAPE recognize the impacts of climate change and the need to take action to mitigate impacts through government operations.
Whereas the international scientific community recognizes the risk posed by climate change for many citizens around the world;
Whereas climate change will have important consequences for many human beings;
Whereas significant measures must be implemented to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to help people adapt to climate change;
Whereas the negation of the problem or lack of initiative is not in the interest of CAPE members, nor in the interests of workers in general;
