Each year, The Climate Group and CDP call upon all states and regions to publicly report on their climate action. Disclosure helps governments to better understand the risks and opportunities of climate change and benchmark their climate action and ambition.
We are pleased to showcase this 2018 Annual Disclosure Report in cooperation with PwC, who have contributed to this analysis as a Knowledge Partner.
In 2018, a record 120 states and regions from 32 countries have disclosed their climate action and targets. Together, these governments represent 21% of the global economy and 672 million people. It’s clear that the commitment of states and regions to climate transparency continues to grow.
Since the first Annual Disclosure report in 2015, the number of disclosing states and regions has grown substantially – from 44 governments to 120. This year 65% of disclosing governments are from the Under2 Coalition, whose members are states and regions committed to keeping global temperature rises to well below 2°C. We encourage all ambitious states and regions to join the Under2 Coalition and to disclose their climate targets and actions through CDP’s Disclosure Platform.
