President Juncker's State of the Union Speech
President Juncker highlighted the critical role the EU played in Paris in brokering the first universal and legally binding deal to tackle global warming stressing how the EU − together with its partners in the High Ambition Coalition – fought to secure the most ambitious agreement possible. The two biggest emitters, China and the US, have already ratified the Paris Agreement.
President Juncker called on the EU and its Member States to complete their respective ratification procedures as swiftly as possible to maintain the EU's global leadership in climate action.
