Analysis: Despite “Code Red” on climate, target update momentum at a standstill

The momentum on updating 2030 targets for climate action has stalled since May, with no major emitters putting forward stronger climate targets, and the 2030 emissions gap has barely changed, according to new analysis released today by the Climate Action Tracker. Only one country - The Gambia - is rating read more...

Redefining Climate Action - a new method for rating countries

New momentum reduces emissions gap, but huge gap remains - analysis

Yesterday’s climate action announcements at US President Biden’s Leaders’ Summit on Climate, together with those announced since September last year, have narrowed the 2030 emissions gap by around 12-14% (2.6-3.7 GtCO2e), according to a provisional post-Summit analysis by the Climate Action Tracker. The largest contributions came from the US, the read more...

To show climate leadership, US 2030 target should be at least 57-63% - analysis

If the Biden Administration wants the US to be a climate leader, its new 2030 Paris Agreement target should aim for national emissions reductions of at least 57-63% below 2005 levels,1 according to the Climate Action Tracker (CAT). This would be a domestic target, and would set the US emissions read more...

Global update: Paris Agreement Turning Point

Paris turning point: net zero targets would bring warming to 2.1°CIf all national governments meet their 2050 net zero emissions targets, warming could be as low as 2.1˚C by 2100, putting the Paris Agreement’s 1.5˚C limit within striking distance, according to new calculations by the Climate Action Tracker.However, all eyes read more...

Australia can move to net-zero emissions by 2050, and would benefit from it - new report

Australia can decarbonise its energy system by 2050 by scaling up climate action in its electricity supply and energy end use sectors, creating up to 76,000 additional jobs in the renewables sector alone, according to a new report by the Climate Action Tracker. In the “Scaling up Climate Action: Australia” read more...
