Millions of residents in some of the fastest growing cities in the world don’t have access to clean, reliable energy, and the challenge of reaching them is not getting easier.

Urban transit bus fleets are a significant source of air pollutant emissions, including black carbon, a harmful ultrafine particle and potent short-lived climate pollutant. Transit bus fleets are therefore an important target for accelerated transitions to clean engine technologies and fuels.

Researchers find that economic, emissions and population trends point to very small chance Earth will avoid warming more than 2C by century’s end

A new report ‘Digging Deep’ analyzing a US$294 billion market cap grouping of the world’s major publicly-listed mining companies reveals they are generating up to US$16 billion in emissions costs by passing down the risk in their value chain.

Historic new research from CDP, voted no. 1 climate change research provider by institutional investors, in collaboration with the Climate Accountability Institute, reveals that 71% of all global GHG emissions since 1988 can be traced to just 100 fossil fuel producers.

The Brown to Green Report 2017 by Climate Transparency provides a comprehensive overview of the G20 countries, whether – and how well – they are doing on the journey to transition to a low-carbon economy. It assesses the main trends for the G20 in emissions, climate policy performance, finance, and decarbonisation.

This report, produced by Carbon Tracker, Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) and leading institutional investors, is the first to rank 69 of the biggest oil and gas industry companies according to the extent of their exposure to the low-carbon transition.

Some of the world’s top banks are continuing to lend tens of billions for extracting the most carbon-intensive fossil fuels, according to a report of top lenders. Finance provided for these fossil fuels – tar sands and other unconventional oil and gas, as well as coal and liquefied natural gas – amounted to $87bn for the top 37 banks in 2016.

The EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) has passed its 10th anniversary. As any other undertaking, it requires, periodically, an assessment regarding its well-functioning, and the delivery of its objectives. Article 10(5) of the EU ETS Directive provides for such a yearly assessment.

The CDM has by now become an established mechanism for crediting climate friendly projects. Projects involving displacement or saving of grid electricity must calculate their emission reductions based on a grid emission factor which needs to be determined in accordance with the rules set by the CDM Executive Board.
