Climate Progress Snapshots - examples of commitments and change across governments and the real economy
2
3
2020 marked a turning point in the race to a healthier, more resilient and more regenerative economy with zero emissions by 2050. The strengthened commitments countries bring to the UN's COP26 climate summit in November 2021 - as required under the 2015 Paris Agreement - will go a long way in cementing the 2020 turning point. But these Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to Paris do not tell the whole story. Change is happening across the global economy, driven by cities, regions businesses and investors - and often much faster than national governments.

This open-access snapshot tool pulls together the myriad of climate pledges and changes taking hold in the real economy, and includes in-depth research briefings on the impacts of climate change, policies, sectoral potential and other timely topics. This is a snapshot of the biggest and most insightful developments around the world, but it does not include every story of progress.
