Around the world, no bigger policy challenge preoccupies leaders than expanding social participation in the process and benefits of economic growth.

The purpose of this study is to compare the generating efficiency and CO2-intensity of fossil-fired power plants for Australia, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway aggregated), South Korea, United Kingdom and Ireland (aggregated), and the United States.

This paper describes the relatively new phenomenon of publicly-capitalized green investment banks and examines why they are being created and how they are mobilizing private investment.

Basic materials such as steel, cement or aluminium are important inputs to our economies. However their production is responsible for the dominant share of industrial emissions and 16% of European greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs).

This publication is intended to contribute to the implementation of the livestock and climate change development agenda. The study evaluates the potential for improving productivity while reducing enteric methane emission intensity from beef production in Uruguay.

The share of the world's electricity generated by coal is expected to fall to about 30 percent from approximately 40 percent in 2015 as the use of lower-emission energy sources including natural gas, nuclear and renewables increases says this report.

Countries around the world have set greenhouse gas targets, but they have taken different forms, from reductions in historical emissions to reductions relative to projected business-as-usual scenarios or the emissions intensity of the economy.

This report provides oil and gas companies and their investors with a framework to assess the resilience of company portfolios to climate- and technology driven shifts in demand, and to provide decision-useful insights that will help companies mitigate the vulnerabilities they face as energy markets transition to a low carbon future.

Question raised in Rajya Sabha on Tackling green gas emission, 05/12/2016. As per voluntary domestic goal announced in 2009, India had pledged to reduce the emission intensity of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 20 to 25 % from 2005 levels by 2020. A slew of policy measures were launched to achieve this goal.

This report presents the results of a trend assessment of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel and cement up to 2015, and updates last year’s assessment.
