Ahead of COP26, as a collective, we’re asking governments for robust climate policies that will support the transition to a future for people, planet and economies. Together, we’ve asked governments to undertake 5 priority actions in 2021

  1. Strengthen their NDCs for 2030 before COP26, to align with limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius and ensuring a planned transition to emissions by 2050 or sooner.
  2. Commit to a domestic mid-century, emissions target and outline a pathway with ambitious interim targets including clear decarbonization roadmaps for each carbon-intensive sector.
  3. Implement domestic policies to deliver these targets, incentivize private investments in zero emissions solutions and ensure ambitious pre-2030 action through: robust carbon pricing, the removal of fossil fuel subsidies by set deadlines, the phase out of thermal coal-based electricity generation by set deadlines in line with credible 1.5 degrees Celsius temperature pathways, the avoidance of new carbon-intensive infrastructure (e.g. no new coal power plants) and the development of just transition plans for affected workers and communities.
  4. Ensure COVID-19 economic recovery plans support the transition to emissions and enhance resilience. This includes facilitating investment in zero-emissions energy and transport infrastructure, avoiding public investment in new carbon-intensive infrastructure and requiring carbon-intensive companies that receive government support to enact climate change transition plans consistent with .
  5. Commit to implementing mandatory climate risk disclosure requirements aligned with the recommendations, ensuring comprehensive disclosures that are consistent, comparable, and decision-useful.
