Bridging the gap: fresh analysis on global emission reduction potentials

08.11.2017 15:45

Organisers: Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, Finnish Government, Dutch Government and Ecofys

Venue: EU Pavilion, COP23, Bonn 

Bridging the emissions gap between current trajectories and pathways compatible with the Paris Agreement requires cutting emissions more, faster and now. However, there have been few up-to-date studies on how different sectors can contribute globally. New analysis addresses the issue by analysing full emission reduction potentials sector by sector. The event presents the results and discusses their importance for global climate action.
