The Ambition Call for the UK

The Ambition Call provides country recommendations for immediate climate action in response to the UN Secretary-General’s request for countries to:

  • present concrete, realistic plans that are compatible with the latest IPCC Special Report on global warming of 1.5°C
  • enhance their NDCs by 2020 and
  • reduce GHG emissions by 45% over the next decade, and to net zero by 2050.

The 2019 Summit in Osaka saw the G20 countries (with the exception of the USA) reaffirming their commitments to fully implement the Paris Agreement. Many have already announced their willingness to increase their mitigation targets, aiming for net-zero emissions by 2050.
