After joining the Climate Pathway Project, São Paulo developed 12 priority actions to reduce emissions across its most polluting sections.
In the months since, the state has also:
- Signed up to the UN’s Race to Zero and Race to Resilience campaigns
- Defined its commitment to net zero by 2050
- Built the first version of its Guidelines for the Climate Action Plan 2050 (currently in public consultation phase).
From a technical point of view, being the only state to address six IPCC emission sectors within the scope of the project, São Paulo was also selected to take part in the development of a simplified and strategic tool for data collection and emissions calculation. Because this tool is more accessible than established modelling methods, it could be used independently by state officials going forward.
