The Communiqué issued at the end of the G20 London summit detailed the commitments as follows:

“We agreed to make the best possible use of investment funded by fiscal stimulus programmes towards the goal of building a resilient, sustainable and green recovery. We will make the transition towards clean, innovative, resource efficient, low carbon technologies and infrastructure. We encourage the multilateral development banks to contribute fully to the achievement of this objective. We will identify and work together on further measures to build sustainable economies.

We reaffirm our commitment to address the threat of irreversible climate change, based on the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, and to reach agreement at the UN Climate Change conference in Copenhagen in December 2009.”
