Climate Action Tracker Briefing: COP28 initiatives will only reduce emissions if followed through
Publication date 09 Dec 2023

We estimate that of the total emissions savings that could be achieved by the pledges, around a quarter is already included in government NDCs, around a quarter is additional and achievable, and around half is unlikely to be achieved without further action to improve the initiatives.

State of Climate Action 2023
Publication date 14 Nov 2023

The State of Climate Action 2023 provides the world’s most comprehensive roadmap of how to close the gap in climate action across sectors to limit global warming to 1.5°C. It finds that recent progress toward 1.5°C-aligned targets isn’t happening at the pace and scale necessary and highlights where action must urgently accelerate this decade to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, scale up carbon removal and increase climate finance.

Kein Fortschritt: Klimaschutzpolitik im deutschen Verkehrssektor entspricht weiterhin etwa 3°C globaler Erwärmung​
Publication date 23 Aug 2023

Diese Studie zeigt auf Basis der aktuellen Emissionsprojektionen aus dem August 2023, dass die Bundesregierung ihre Zusage zur Einhaltung der 1,5°C-Grenze und des Pariser Abkommens bricht. Insbesondere der Verkehrssektor verzeichnet massiv überhöhte Treibhausgasemissionen und befindet sich derzeit auf einem Pfad zu 2,8°C globaler Erderhitzung.

Klimaschutzpolitik im deutschen Verkehrssektor entspricht etwa 3°C globaler Erwärmung
Publication date 27 Apr 2023

Die aktuell umgesetzte Klimapolitik im deutschen Verkehrssektor bis 2030 entspricht einer Erderwärmung von etwa 3°C. Der deutsche Verkehrssektor würde von 2016 bis 2030 fast doppelt so viel verbrauchen, wie das Budget, das ihm für die Einhaltung der 1,5°C-Grenze zustünde. Damit ist der Verkehrssektor das Schlusslicht unter den Sektoren in Deutschland.
