Tropical forests around the world are being destroyed at an alarming rate, even in 2020 when the global economy slowed dramatically during the pandemic. A new report offers insight into a primary driver of this deforestation – and our unwitting complicity as consumers.

As part of the roadmap to achieve its climate-neutrality goal, the European Commission will come forward with a proposal for revised CO2 targets for new passenger cars and vans by the middle of 2021.

This report by the International Energy Agency offers world's first comprehensive roadmap for transitioning to a net zero energy system by 2050. It includes more than 400 milestones that set out how governments and businesses could navigate the rapid transformation of the global economy

This report shows how 2020 marked ten years of cities reporting the climate and environmental data through the CDP-ICLEI Unified Reporting System. It presents how in 2020, there has been a 17x increase in city disclosure since 2011 — 812 cities have disclosed, compared to just 48 in 2011.

To be in line with the 1.5°C limit of the Paris Agreement, Germany’s new 2030 domestic reduction target should aim for national emission reductions of at least 69% below 1990 levels. To fully contribute its fair share Germany would have to significantly increase its international climate finance.

Each year Rhodium Group provides the most up-to-date global and country-level greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions estimates through the ClimateDeck (a partnership with Breakthrough Energy).

In this briefing, the Climate Action Tracker (CAT) estimates global warming by 2100 to be at an all-time low of 2.4°C. Due to recent climate action announcements at President Biden’s Leaders Summit on Climate, together with those announced since September 2020, have improved the CAT’s global warming estimate by 0.2°C.

In 2019 alone, India experienced an estimated 1.2 million air pollution-related premature deaths. At the same time, India’s growing economy is driving CO2 emissions, which increased by more than 55% in the last decade, and are expected to rise by 50% to 2040.

This report discusses how Denmark - a country whose major agricultural organizations have committed to become carbon neutral by 2050 - can achieve carbon neutral agriculture. The report’s lessons can inform not only Denmark’s agricultural future, but also that of other advanced agricultural economies.

This report presents domestic emissions pathways required to keep to the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C limit for five countries: Viet Nam, Philippines, India, Indonesia and Japan and assesses if current 2030 climate targets are in line with these pathways. Pathways are derived from the pathways assessed in the IPCC Special Report 1.5°C.
