Increasing accountability by encouraging state and regional governments to disclose their climate targets, action and progress.


Capacity building

For governments, a robust understanding of their emissions is essential to raise public awareness of climate change, and functions as the backbone of their climate plan. It is also an essential element for supporting their national government with improving their own targets for climate action.

The Climate Group, as Secretariat of the Under2 Coalition, helps regions in developing and newly industrialised countries to better understand the mitigation opportunities by improving and expanding Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of GHG emissions and undertaking MRV of mitigation actions where sufficiently robust GHG inventories are in place.

We're increasing transparent disclosure of states and regions' climate data.
Transparency coupled with communication accelerates climate action.

Working in partnership

Climate Group and CDP are long standing partners and engage on both corporate and government disclosure. On the governments side, we have a strong focus on better data reporting for transparency. Therefore, we encourage subnational governments to report to the CDP Annual States and Regions Disclosure in addition to the Under2 Ambition Tracker and keep that data as up to date as possible. 

Race to Zero

Race to Zero

The Under2 Coalition is an official partner of UNFCCC's Race to Zero campaign.

This UN-backed global rallies non-state actors – including companies, cities, regions, financial institutions and educational establishments – to take rigorous and immediate action to halve global emissions by 2030 and deliver a healthier, fairer zero carbon world.
