"Noting that a small percentage of the world’s people account for a large portion of global consumption, the conference concluded: “The wealthy are thus substantially responsible for the increase in global warming and, consequently, the decrease in biodiversity.” The statement argued: “An inescapable condition for attaining global sustainability is wealth redistribution.”
The statement called for “new ways of working together to build a sustainable, stable, and socially just world.”
