This briefing presents progress made by the EU and its Member States towards meeting the 2010 emission ceilings that were applicable until the end of 2019 under Directive 2016/2284/EU — the National Emission reduction Commitments (NEC) Directive — on the reduction of national emissions of certain atmospheric pollutants.

Restoring degraded natural habitats such as peatland and coastal marsh is crucial if Britain is to meet its ambitious climate change targets, according to a report from the Wildlife Trusts charity. UK grasslands store 2 billion tonnes of carbon, but this is vulnerable to disturbance.

With societies months-long in confinements and factories shut, the COVID-19 pandemic has gravely impacted economies across Europe and beyond. 2020 was touted the year of the electric car in Europe and early 2020 showed record plug-in sales.

Fully decarbonizing global industry is essential to achieving climate stabilization, and reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050–2070 is necessary to limit global warming to 2 °C. This paper assembles and evaluates technical and policy interventions, both on the supply side and on the demand side.

This briefing assesses the recent climate change announcements from six European oil & gas majors. This briefing paper provides provisional Carbon Performance assessments for the six European integrated oil and gas companies covered by TPI following the disclosure of new targets by BP, Eni, Repsol, Shell and Total in the last six months.

New research from the Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI) reveals that just two of the ten largest mining companies are aligned with limiting climate change to 2°C. These 10 companies have a market capitalisation of over $350bn and contribute to annual carbon emissions of over 1.5 billion tonnes either directly or indirectly via their products.

This new report by IRENA shows the path to create a sustainable future energy system. It highlights climate-safe investment options until 2050, the policy framework needed for the transition and the challenges faced by different regions.

India has ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) which is the primary multilateral treaty governing actions to combat climate change through adaptation and mitigation efforts directed at control of emission of Green House Gases (GHGs) that cause global warming.

As per data collected from the Telecom Service Providers (TSPs) and Department of Telecommunications (DoT) field units in 2019, it is estimated that 5,69,897 villages out of 5,97,618 inhabited villages in the country are covered by mobile services. State/Union Territory-wise list of number of covered and uncovered villages is given at Annexure. Mobile coverage in the uncovered villages in the country is being provided by the Government and TSPs in a phased manner.
