This briefing provides an overview of the development in climate action over the last year and illustrates the new CAT assessment of the countries we analyse, based on our updated method. Read More
To limit global warming to well under two degrees, the global economy needs to undergo system-wide changes. Finance has a critical role to play. Current inaction continues to lead to inefficient capital allocation, undermining efforts towards decarbonisation and financial stability. Read More
Niklas Höhne stellte auf der Auftaktpressekonferenz zum 12. Petersberger Klimadialog das neueste Global Update des Climate Action Trackers vor.
Climate action announcements at US President Biden’s Leaders Summit on Climate, together with those announced since September last year, have improved the Climate Action Tracker’s warming estimate by 0.2°C. End of century warming from these Paris Agreement pledges and targets is now estimated to be 2.4°C. Read More
We propose three things development banks can do to align their financing through financial intermediaries with the Paris Agreement. Read More
The research looks at how cost reductions for renewable energy technologies impact energy planning and climate policy in Argentina, including in the NDC process. Read More
A discussion of using aspects of carbon market mechanisms for results based finance in the Paris era, including challenges, some solutions, and a potential niche role going forward. Read More
Durante este webinar se han presentado y discutido opciones para la preparación de estrategias de desarrollo bajo en emisiones de GEI en el contexto de la recuperación económica tras la pandemia de COVID-19.
This report analyses how the role of sustainable development can be strengthened in the process of further designing the mechanisms under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. Read More
Esta guía ofrece recomendaciones a los tomadores de decisiones sobre cómo abordar la elaboración de una LTS o estrategia a largo plazo para un desarrollo bajo en emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero, dadas las circunstancias singulares de cada país en 2020, y de las futuras revisiones de la misma.

The recent wave of net zero targets has put the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C within striking distance. In this briefing, the Climate Action Tracker (CAT) has calculated that global warming by 2100 could be as low as 2.1°C as a result of all the net zero pledges announced as of November 2020. Read More
At this virtual event, we presented and discussed guidance for the development of long-term low GHG emission development strategies, in the context of economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
We critically assess options for the voluntary carbon market and offer a set of recommendations, heading into the Paris era. Read More
The European transport sector is the laggard of sectoral transformations, but it should not stand in the way of a more ambitious EU Climate Law. Our latest blogpost recommends policies that could reach a 65% emission reduction by 2030. Read More
This report provides insights into the magnitude and ambition of financial institution’s climate-related investment targets, and investigates their relationship with GHG emissions in the real economy. Read More
We assess the EIB’s transport-related investment portfolio 2015-2019 and propose evaluation criteria to align transport investments with the Paris Agreement. Read More
Country and company climate neutrality targets are not all equal. This discussion paper explores factors to consider in gauging the ambition of climate neutrality targets from climate leadership to greenwashing. Read More
This report presents a pathway and required policy packages to decarbonise the European transport sector by 2040. Read More
This report assesses the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated recovery measures on emissions out to 2030 and provide a framework for analysing the ‘greenness’ of recovery packages. Read More
In this paper with Fraunhofer ISI, we argue that only the combination of assessments on “what is a fair contribution” and of “how much could emissions technically be reduced” can give sufficient guidance for national greenhouse gas emissions targets that are in line with the Paris Agreement.
