Unlocking ambition: Top corporate and sub-national climate commitments
- 05 June 2015
In this short brochure produced for the Bonn climate talks, research by CDP and The Climate Group shows that over 100 major companies, states, regions, and cities around the world have set ambitious GHG emissions reduction targets and renewable power goals - in some cases reaching up to 100%.
As nations work to close the “emissions gap” between current national contributions and those needed to limit global warming to 2°C, these commitments show that ambitious GHG emissions reduction targets are within reach.
Companies are acting because they understand that creating a low-carbon strategy is good for their bottom-line. And sub-national governments recognize that climate policy creates communities that are healthier, more competitive and more resilient.
