Terminator’s climate group sets up in Geneva

R20, the non-profit organisation founded by former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to combat climate change, will establish its headquarters in Geneva.

Launched in December 2009, R20 comprises some 30 local governments around the world which aim to limit global warming to two degrees above 1990 levels.

“We chose Geneva because that is where the majority of United Nations specialist environmental agencies are, as well as the largest non-governmental organisations like the WWF, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and the World Economic Forum, also the private banks,” R20 executive director Christophe Nuttall said on Thursday.

Canton Geneva will assume the R20’s rental costs for the first two years under a policy of encouraging non-governmental organisations to  establish themselves in the region.
