Climate transparency – activities in six G20 countries

As of: November 2020

The project combines the most critical climate assessments and the expertise of various institutions from G20 countries. Working together, experts use independent, comparable and comprehensive data to show how far the transformation from a fossil to a green economy has progressed in the individual G20 countries. The annual “Brown to Green Report” contains clear information on emission reduction, vulnerability and finances. By using this information for the climate performance of the G20 countries, the project strengthens the knowledge of key stakeholders in Argentina, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Mexico and South Africa, expanding their capacity to initiate ambitious climate protection measures. Workshops, briefings, publications and media reports inform government representatives, G20 stakeholders, NGOs (Non-Governmental Organisations) think tanks and companies about the climate-friendly transformation from fossil fuels to renewable energies (“brown to green”). /
