Virtual event: Systems Change for People and Planet: What You Need to Know
Venue Online
Date 02 Mar 2023
Start time 16:00

To limit global temperature rise, conserve nature, and build a fairer economy that benefits everyone, we will need deep change across every aspect of our economies at a pace and scale we have not yet seen. Because our world is complex and interconnected — small changes in one system can have unforeseen consequences in others — spurring transformative action requires a systemic approach. Join Systems Change Lab on March 2 at 4 p.m. CET (10 a.m. EST) to learn what you need to know about systems change. Systems Change Lab has identified more than 70 transformational shifts needed to protect both...

Plans for German liquefied natural gas terminals are massively oversized
Publication date 13 Dec 2022

The study compares Germany's plans for the expansion of LNG import infrastructure with the actual need for imports. The analysis concludes that Germany's plans are massively oversized and not compatible with the path to climate neutrality. Germany's climate protection goals require a significant reduction in gas consumption, and the planned infrastructure either risks large financial losses due to low utilisation, or calls into question compliance with the path to climate neutrality.

Pläne für deutsche Flüssigerdgas-Terminals sind massiv überdimensioniert
Publication date 08 Dec 2022

Die Studie vergleicht die Pläne Deutschlands für den Ausbau der LNG-Importinfrastruktur mit dem tatsächlichen Bedarf an Importen. Die Analyse kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass die Pläne Deutschlands massiv überdimensioniert und nicht mit dem Pfad zur Klimaneutralität vereinbar sind. Deutschlands Klimaschutzziele verlangen eine deutliche Reduktion des Gasverbrauchs und die geplante Infrastruktur riskiert entweder große finanzielle Verluste durch eine geringe Auslastung, oder stellt das Einhalten des Pfads zur Klimaneutralität in Frage.

COP27: Paris-compatible sector benchmarks to help in defining national and corporate climate action
Venue COP27, WeMeanBusiness Pavilion, Auditorium A
Date 14 Nov 2022
Start time 14:30

The event presented and discussed the results of multiple years of work to develop and update Paris-compatible sectoral benchmarks. Sectoral benchmarks break down the mitigation objectives under the Paris Agreement to the sectoral level and hence make them more accessible to a broader audience. Those benchmarks aim at helping decision makers to assess if recent developments and future targets of countries, as well as non-state and subnational actors, are compatible with the Paris Agreement’s long-term temperature limit. Beyond providing the benchmark, they also enlighten on the road to achieve...
