The historic and legally binding Paris Agreement gave us a roadmap to address climate change once and for all. 194 nations universally adopted this agreement, committing to holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°c above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°c.

IT’S ACHIEVABLE

Bending the curve of emissions by 2020 is the only way to limit global warming and ensure that the Sustainable Development Goals remain within our reach. It will also pave the way to delivering a just transition to net zero emissions by 2050.

Renewables outcompete fossil fuels as new electricity sources worldwide. Cities and states have established plans and are implementing policies and regulations with the aim to fully decarbonise infrastructure by 2050. Zero emission transport is the preferred form of all new mobility in the world’s major cities and transport routes. Large-scale deforestation is replaced by large-scale land restoration and agriculture shifts to earth friendly practices. Heavy industry – including iron & steel, cement, chemicals, and oil & gas – commits to being Paris compliant. Investment in climate action is beyond USD $1trillion per year and all financial institutions have a disclosed transition strategy.
