About the initative

The Under2 Ambition Tracker takes a dynamic approach to data collection to ensure effective monitoring of the Under2 Coalition’s progress to net zero emissions. Data insights are used to inform members of best practice and improve the Coalition’s policies, projects and communications.

Our survey gathers climate data directly from members to help them realise their collective ambition. It complements the CDP Annual Disclosure process, which we encourage members to continue completing and which is currently collecting data on all states and regions as part of a broader process of measuring and managing their environmental impacts.

Insights and analysis developed by the Climate Group will be used to profile the pioneering climate action of Under2 Coalition states and regions and will be accessible to members through an interactive tool, enabling the benchmarking of data against each other.

Governments that take part in the initiative are showing their commitment to transparency and accountability and, ultimately, will be better equipped to understand the risks and opportunities presented by their emissions profiles and improve their emissions reduction strategies.

The Under2 Ambition Tracker survey is open for submissions

The Climate Group has been using climate data to provide a global picture of state and regional ambition and impact for over six years. This year we are evolving the process so that it is aimed solely at Under2 Coalition members in order to develop a more complete picture of our membership.

  • We’re taking an agile and dynamic approach to data collection, meaning it’ll be quick and easy for members to take part.
  • We’re collecting data relevant to progress tracking, aligning with our core areas of work including our ambition shift to net zero emissions.
  • We’ll use the data to respond to demand, provide analysis and create tailored projects and knowledge sharing opportunities.

Transparency is at the heart of the Under2 Coalition, and we encourage all members to complete the short, online survey that covers topics including net zero, pathways and green recovery.

Frequently asked questions

What is the Under2 Ambition Tracker?

The Under2 Ambition Tracker takes a dynamic approach to data collection to ensure effective monitoring of the Under2 Coalition’s progress to net zero emissions.

Ultimately, we want the tracker to provide clear and accessible data on members’ targets, progress and actions that can be viewed and understood by everyone. This contributes to the transparency of our systems but also helps us to provide more targeted support and knowledge sharing of best practices.

Who should take part?

We strongly encourage all Under2 Coalition members to complete this survey to help us create a baseline of climate activities among members. In doing this we’ll be able to understand how the Coalition is aligning with its ambitious goals and where we need to focus our efforts to do more.

How is this different from the Annual Disclosure?

The Under2 Ambition Tracker is aimed at understanding our membership and collecting information that will help us to realise its collective ambition, particularly around becoming a net zero coalition. This will complement the CDP Annual Disclosure process, which we encourage members to continue completing, and which is currently collecting data on all states and regions as part of a broader process of measuring and managing their environmental impacts
