Climate Transparency Report 2020

Cover Climate Transparency Report 2020
The "Climate Transparency Report" 2020 reviews the climate policy of the G20 members

The G20 countries are responsible for around 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Last year, energy-related CO2 emissions in the G20 fell slightly for the first time, by 0.1% after a rise of 1.9% in 2018, without an economic crisis as a trigger. The key to these initial successes is the continuing boom in renewable energies. However, the report shows that the G20 countries as a whole are not yet on a stable path towards climate neutrality by 2050, as the political framework conditions and investments are mostly not yet in line with the long-term climate targets.
