Global greenhouse gas emissions under different scenarios and the emissions gap in 2030

UNEP just released its latest Emissions Gap Report. The report shows that: “Pathways for staying well below 2 and 1.5°C require deep emission reductions after, and preferably also before, 2020 and lower levels of emissions in 2030 than earlier assessed 2°C pathways”. In addition: “The emissions gap for 2030 is 12 to 14 GtCO2e compared [...]

Comparison of global emission levels resulting from the INDCs in 2025 and 2030 with other trajectories


Comparison of global emission levels resulting from the intended nationally determined contributions in 2025 and 2030 with pre-INDC reference scenarios and 2 °C scenarios. If countries uphold their commitments (as currently stated), growth of greenhouse gas emissions will slow, but not enough to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius.
