To drive the implementation of the Paris Agreement under the German G20 presidency, Climate Transparency will publish its 2017 Brown to Green Report before the G20 summit in July 2017. Providing a credible and comprehensive comparison of the climate performance of G20 countries the report also strives to stimulate national debate in these countries. Several communication activities in different G20 countries and a launch event are planned around the publication of the report.
