The State of Climate Action:
Major Course Correction Needed from +1.5% to −7% Annual Emissions
As COP28 approaches, humanity is still far from solving its biggest challenge. Following years of insufficient action, the ambition agreed upon in Paris in 2015 may be slipping out of reach, less than ten years after its formulation. To retain any chance of limiting global warming below 1.5°C by the end of this century, global emissions must decrease by around 7% annually until 2030 – but they are still increasing by 1.5% today.
