Issued on behalf of all of the group's members – Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russian, Sweden and the United States, and six indigenous permanent participant organisations – the council said it remains committed to working with other countries under the auspices of the UN to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.

The Arctic Council recognized the need to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, minimize emissions of short live climate pollutants, particularly black carbon, methane and hydroflurocarbons, which are contributing significantly to near – term impacts in the Arctic.
