12 insights to move beyond coal towards net-zero

This booklet of infographics breaks down the top 12 things you need to know on the G20 countries’ transition beyond coal towards net-zero emissions.

Nearly a third of global energy-related CO2 emissions come from the coal sector. To meet the Paris Agreement, countries urgently need to deliver plans for the global and local phase-out of coal, and to facilitate a just transition.

This booklet shows that there is a global shift away from coal by examining coal power capacities, policies and finance and looks into investment alternatives for a green and modern energy system with a focus on renewables and (green) hydrogen.

It has been produced as part of the event series “Beyond Coal – Towards Net-Zero Emissions” in Japan, South Korea and China in the run up to COP26.
