About the product

This report present a quantitative assessment of the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions mitigation impact in 2020 of current non-state climate action. Its focus is initiatives with the potential to be large scale. The report predicts that over the next few years, new targets for the post 2020 period will be agreed by existing and new members of initiatives. Thus any quantification now for post 2020 would likely lead to an underestimate of the contribution from initiatives. The total calculated impact represents the GHG emission reduction and takes into account overlaps between initiatives. It also estimates to what extent the emission reductions are additional to those achieved through climate action of national governments.
