In December 2015, the United Nations Climate Change Conference was held in Paris. The conference negotiated the Paris Agreement, which is a global agreement on the reduction of climate change. At the follow-up climate change conference in Marrakech (COP22) in November 2016, the member states of the Kyoto Protocol agreed to set the goal of limiting global warming to a still acceptable level of less than 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels. This target requires that the zero emission of CO2 is achieved soon.
