In the week of the G20 Summit, Climate Transparency presents its new report providing concise, comprehensive, comparable and credible information on how well each G20 country has advanced in four areas: Emissions, Policy performance, Finance and Decarbonization.

Brown to Green Report 2017: The G20 transition to a low-carbon economy

Monday 3 July – 10:00-11:00 am CEST (or convert time)

A video recording will be available directly after the webinar.

Global emissions will need to peak within the coming years and be reduced to zero by 2050 to keep the 2°C or even 1.5°C limit under the Paris Agreement. The G20 countries are well positioned to play the needed leadership role in the transition from burning “brown” fossil fuels to a “green” low-carbon economy. But how well are they performing?
