  1. The Copenhagen Accord is a further step on a longer environmental, economic and political journey.
  2. All considered, the Accord is an effective step in terms of reshaping the climate change policy dialogue and direction.
  3. The Copenhagen Accord appears to provide a framework that is directionally supportive of the principles that CAPP members see as necessary for effective Canadian climate policy.
  4. CAPP will continue to engage constructively in the broader dialogue regarding Canadian climate change policy in the post-Copenhagen period.
