Mexico 2024 Climate Scorecard Award:

Hans Blomeier, Konrad-Adenauer Stiftung Mexico Representative and Eduardo Walsh, Project Manager

Dear Hans Blomeier & Eduardo Walsh,

I am pleased to inform you that the Foundation Office in Mexico of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) has been selected as the recipient of Climate Scorecard’s 2024 Government Climate Leadership Award. This recognition is a testament to your organization’s outstanding efforts and achievements in reducing emissions within Mexico over the past year.

Your commitment to advancing energy management and climate change mitigation through initiatives such as the Energy Management and Climate Change Index has significantly contributed to Mexico’s efforts to combat climate change and transition to a low-carbon economy. By prioritizing sustainability and implementing practical solutions for emissions reduction, your organization has set a commendable example for others to follow.

As part of our mission at Climate Scorecard, a nine-year-old non-profit organization dedicated to reporting on and advocating for efforts to reduce emissions in leading greenhouse gas-emitting countries and the EU, we strive to recognize and promote initiatives that demonstrate significant progress toward addressing climate change. We believe your organization’s accomplishments align closely with our mission, and we are honored to acknowledge your outstanding contributions.

Looking ahead, we encourage the Foundation Office in Mexico of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung to continue building on its current work and further reduce emissions through the following actions:

  • Advocate for Policy Implementation: Champion the implementation of stricter emissions regulations and policies at the national and local levels, including supporting the adoption of renewable energy mandates and promoting sustainable transportation practices.
  • Enhance Capacity Building and Education: Invest in capacity building and education programs to empower government officials and stakeholders with the knowledge and skills necessary to drive sustainable change.
  • Foster Partnership and Collaboration: Collaborate with other governmental agencies, NGOs, private sector entities, and academic institutions to leverage collective expertise and resources for more comprehensive and effective emissions reduction initiatives.

By focusing on the following actions, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Foundation Office in Mexico can further solidify its leadership role in emissions reduction efforts and contribute to Mexico’s transition towards a more sustainable and resilient future.

Please accept our heartfelt congratulations once again on this well-deserved recognition. We look forward to continuing to support and celebrate your organization’s efforts in the fight against climate change.

Warm regards,
