Global Synthesis Report on climate action by sector

Every year since 2018, the Climate Chance Observatory publishes a Global Synthesis Report on climate action by sector, an analysis of the evolution of CO2 emissions in the light of the actions actually undertaken by non-state actors in 6 emission sectors: energy, transport, building, industry, waste and land use.

Sector-based Report 2021

Six years after the adoption of the Paris Agreement, at a time when the States are due to increase their commitments at COP26 in Glasgow, Climate Chance Observatory’s is continuing its mission of following the implementation of the actions announced, monitoring the evolution of emissions and analysing the strategies of the actors in relation to the international climate objectives.

Sector-based Report 2019

In this 2nd edition, the trends and weak signals observed in 6 GHG emitting sectors are analysed : energy, transport, industry and land use and, new in this edition, the building and waste emission sectors. The report analyses the breaks and continuities in the actions taken by non-state actors. Since 2018, emissions have continued to increase : the Climate Chance Observatory notes that this trend seems difficult to reverse in all sectors.

Sector-based Report 2018

This first Report provides a “point zero”, the basis of understanding needed to identify the most significant developments year after year. Synthetic analyses pointing out the dynamics at work and the remarkable initiatives taken throughout the world by non-state actors are covered in this edition, across the major emission sectors of energy, transport, industry and land use.
