  • National Climate Change Action Plan 2008-2012
    Chile's National Climate Change Action Plan establishes a framework for all of the nation?s activities aimed at evaluating the impact, vulnerability and adaptation to climate change and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. It seeks to respond to the imperative made clear by recent scientific evidence regarding projected climate change during the 21st century, from which our country is not exempt. It also aims to fulfill the commitment Chile made when it signed the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
  • Santiago Climate Exchange
    SCX, Santiago Climate Exchange, is the first private initiative of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and the first to adopt the strictest criteria and methodologies for tracking the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), worldwide. The overall objective is the creation and development of a large greenhouse gas emissions reduction industry in Chile.
