A report by the Polish Electricity Association entitled “Polish Power Sector is Changing” was to be presented in the Polish pavilion at the United Nations’ COP24 conference, which aims to discuss ways of tackling global warming and climate change.

Poland’s Deputy Energy Minister Grzegorz Tobiszowski said “the report shows the way the Polish energy sector has changed” after the fall of communism.

“The Polish energy sector has made huge investments, limiting emissions,” Tobiszowski added.

Experts gathered at the COP24 conference on Thursday were also to take part in the “Cities for Climate Urban Summit” to discuss the impact of cities and agglomerations on the global climate.

The 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, also known as COP24, officially opened in Katowice on Monday and runs until December 14.

Speaking at the official opening of the summit on Monday, the Polish president said his country was "ready to take its share of responsibility for international security," including in terms of climate policy.

Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told international leaders on Tuesday, the second day of the conference, that his country was among nations leading the way in efforts to stop global warming.
