A special edition of the Corporate Climate Responsibility Monitor assesses the integrity of renewable electricity targets from 10 major companies in fashion and tech. The real GHG emission reduction impact of companies’ renewable electricity claims is often far less than implied.

Since the discovery of large offshore oil and gas reserves in 2014, Senegal has set its hopes on fossil fuel export revenue to help fund its plans to become an emerging economy by 2035.

This report by NewClimate Institute, PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) provides an overview of projected greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 25 major emitting economies up to 2030 under currently implemented policies.

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.

This paper introduces seven key functions of an accountability system for corporate climate action. Further provide selected observations on how to improve the accountability system’s status quo.

This report aims to shed light on net zero portfolio targets’ internal climate prioritisation value (Do they drive financial institutions’ climate action?) and real-world impact value (What can we expect from those targets? How useful are they to achieve international climate goals? Do we need them?).

According to the Paris Agreement's Article 4, paragraph 19, nations are strongly urged to create and communicate their long-term strategies (LTS) considering the principle of Common But Differentiated Responsibilities and Respective Capabilities (CBDR-RC) given the national circumstances.

Achieving the Paris Agreement necessitates transformative changes across all sectors globally, including significant reductions in AFOLU emissions and increased carbon sinks, particularly in Latin America where AFOLU emissions account for 46% of total emissions, mostly driven by commodity agriculture and livestock.

The high hanging fruit of mitigation potential refers to the technologies and measures to decarbonise emission sources that remain otherwise entirely inaccessible to host country governments in the near- and medium-term future, on account of extraordinary costs or other insurmountable barriers that cannot reasonably be overcome.
