COP 25: The U.N. Climate Change Conference was Officially Launched


On September 9th, an inaugural event launched the construction of the complex that will receive delegates from 196 nations and U.N. members who will participate in the Conference of the Parties number 25 (COP 25) of the United Nations Framework Convention (UNFCCC). The conference is organized in response to climate change, and will take place in Chile this December. In addition, the agenda for the civil society was announced by President Sebastián Piñera on the same day.

As the official law firm for COP 25, Carey participated in the negotiation of the main contract for the organization of the event with GL Events, a French based company, which is responsible for setting up the event that will be the largest held in Chile since the World Cup of 1962.

In addition, our firm has provided ongoing legal advice to COP 25 on different areas of practice.

Carey partners, Matías Vergara and Juan Francisco Mackenna, attended the launch event together with associate Carmina Hernández, during which President Piñera called on the nation to address the problem of climate change.
