The "transformation points" towards decarbonisation

The latest paper in our decarbonisation series looks at the high-speed, large-scale transformations that must be achieved on the way to the zero-carbon future required to meet the Paris Agreement’s 1.5˚C warming limit.Reaching a “transformation point”—the moment when new technologies, behaviours or market models achieve critical mass and take off—can read more...

CAT annual update: Climate policies on rise, but government climate action doesn’t change projected warming

If all governments achieve their largely insufficient climate targets, the world will see 3.0˚C of warming by 2100, twice the 1.5˚C limit they agreed in Paris three years ago, according to the Climate Action Tracker’s annual update, delivered today at the climate talks in Katowice, Poland. However, there has been read more...

Report - The EU can more than halve emissions by 2030 by acting in just three sectors

The European Union could reduce its emissions by more than 50% by 2030 compared to 1990 by scaling up climate action in just three sectors: electricity supply, residential buildings and passenger road transport, according to a new analysis released today by the Climate Action Tracker. These three sectors account for read more...
