In a significant step toward advancing sustainable environmental practices, addressing climate change and plugging Nigeria in, to benefit from the global carbon economy Joerno Group has initiated preliminary discussions with the National Council on Climate Change (NCCC). This collaborative effort seeks to explore potential avenues for mitigating green carbon emissions while maintaining transparency and responsible communication.

The Role of the National Council on Climate Change

The NCCC, established by former President Muhammadu Buhari in 2022, serves as Nigeria’s authoritative body for climate-related matters. Its mandate includes formulating policies, strategies, and action plans to promote environmental stewardship and drive sustainable development. By convening experts, policymakers, and stakeholders, the NCCC aims to create a resilient and eco-conscious Nigeria.
