China’s internet data center industry emitted an estimated 99 million tonnes of CO2 in 2018, new research from Greenpeace East Asia and the North China Electric Power University shows. Researchers found that increasing the sector’s renewable energy intake by 7% over the next five years would reduce carbon emissions by 16 million tonnes.

Reducing CO2 emissions from all new cars and accelerating the uptake of zero emission models is essential to prevent a climate emergency. This is not a silver bullet - local and national policies need to reduce car ownership and use and promote active travel and shared mobility, which are also important.

Cities worked together to summarize the most relevant information and actionable findings related to the latest science on 1.5°C.

This study examines the drivers of both the previous decline in global energy-related CO2 emissions, and their subsequent growth in recent years (in the EU, US, India and China), and argues that this trend was in neither case a good indicator of climate policy effort or effectiveness.

To achieve the Paris Agreement goals and limit global temperature rise this century to 1.5°C, the global economy must be rapidly transformed. A carbon price is needed to incorporate climate change costs into economic decision-making to significantly reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, particularly in the electricity sector.

Non–carbon dioxide (CO2) greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are a substantial driver of climate change and have significant negative impacts on air quality, human health, and food production. In 2014, the last year with official data, non-GHG emissions in China were greater than total GHG emissions in Japan or Brazil.

Constructing and renovating New Zealand buildings between now and 2050 could pump out climate change pollution equivalent to one million cars on the road every year, a new report by New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) has revealed.

This paper summarizes and compares the two main test methods for aerodynamic evaluations of heavy trucks in the United States and the European Union: coastdown testing and constant-speed testing, respectively.

This paper provides a concrete example of how policy analysts can use empirical programme evaluation studies to perform ex-post assessments of environmentally related tax policies.
