The Global States and Regions Annual Disclosure 2019 is the most comprehensive account of state and regional climate action released to date and summarizes data from 124 states and regions from 35 countries, with a combined population of 669 million people, representing 20% of the global economy

Key findings

  • 75 states and regions are generating 45% of their electricity from renewable sources
  • States and regions have, on average, reduced emissions by 14% as global emissions continue to rise
  • States and regions are on track for the 1.5˚C goal in 2020, but more needs to be done to reach net-zero by 2050.

What is Annual Disclosure? 

Each year states and regions from around the world disclose their climate action, targets and progress to The Climate Group and CDP. This data provides an insight into progress towards reaching the Paris Agreement and keeping the global temperature rise to well below 2°C. The process also supports governments to better understand the risks and opportunities presented by their emissions, so they can improve their emissions reduction strategies.

The data from Annual Disclosure is at the heart of our work at The Climate Group driving our work across climate action with state and regional governments. Using insight from the process we are able to respond to demand, provide analysis and create tailored projects and knowledge sharing opportunities across the Under2 Coalition.
