Video: CCAC leaders explain why we must significantly reduce short-lived climate pollutants by 2030

We are at a critical point. There is a public health emergency from air pollution and a global climate crisis. In today’s world, the Climate and Clean Air Coalition is more needed than ever.

Our vision is an atmosphere that enables people and the planet to thrive – a stabilized climate with warming limited to 1.5ºC and drastically reduced air pollution.

In the next decade we will work to put the world on a pathway that rapidly reduces warming in the near-term and maximizes development, health, environmental and food security benefits.

Building on our experiences we will both drive and respond to scientific and political progress, guided by the following imperatives:

  • Working at the nexus of climate and air quality, delivering multiple benefits from the mitigation of short-lived climate pollutants: methane, HFCs, black carbon and tropospheric ozone.
  • Strengthening our partnership to deliver results, working arm-in-arm with leaders of national governments, subnational governments, cities, intergovernmental organizations, non-governmental organizations, companies, and civil society.
  • Providing decision-makers the confidence to deliver fast and immediate mitigation.

Together we will catalyse action to raise ambition.
