The largest U.S. companies are increasing their clean energy and energy efficiency efforts while improving their bottom lines — and playing an important role in the decarbonization of the U.S. electric power sector.

Investing in more gas will lock in high electricity prices and pollution for decades to come. The new report, ‘Pollution and Price: The cost of investing in gas,’ shows that tackling climate change and protecting Australians from worsening extreme weather requires electricity system to produce zero emissions before 2050.

The past two years have seen significant shifts in corporate activity regarding climate change. For businesses, the entry into force of the Paris Agreement has perhaps been the key catalyst to contemplate a future policy environment consistent with its objective of limiting global warming to well below 2°C.

Only eleven EU Member States delivered a 2050 emissions reduction strategy by 2015 as required by EU law - and the strategies that were submitted vary hugely in quality. These are the findings of this report from the EU LIFE-funded MaxiMiseR project from WWF’s European Policy Office.

If the goal of the Paris climate agreement - to limit the global temperature increase below 2°C - is to be met, all financial flows need to shift dramatically and rapidly from current investment patterns to 2°C compatible pathways.

Complete decarbonization of the electricity demand of Indian Railways (IR) – transitioning from the current, largely fossil-fuel based energy mix to clean energy like solar and wind power – is likely to have multiple benefits.

This paper examines how best to use revenues from a carbon tax to achieve both climate and non-climate goals, identifying pitfalls and strategies to avoid them. As many governments around the world consider carbon taxes (and other forms of carbon pricing), a common question is what to do with the revenue they generate.

Greening the wood energy sector holds a vast potential for reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and improving rural livelihoods, FAO said on the occasion of the UN's International Day of Forests. Up to seven percent of global greenhouse gas emissions caused by humans come from the production and use of fuelwood and charcoal.
