Our 2030 Strategy

To achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and hold warming to 1.5˚C, the Coalition must now deliver significant reductions in SLCPs over the next decade.

The science indicates that this is possible. Methane emissions can be reduced by 40% and black carbon by 70% by 2030 (from 2010 levels). Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) can be virtually eliminated with the potential for a 99.5% reduction by 2050 (from 2010 levels).

Our 2030 Strategy sets out three directions to guide the Coalition. These are:

  • Driving an ambitious agenda by increasing high-level ambition
  • Supporting national and transformative actions by mobilizing finance and strengthening capacity building to achieve substantial emission reductions
  • Advancing policy-relevant research and analysis to provide decision-makers the confidence and tools to make ambitious commitments and take fast action

The 2030 Strategy lays out the mechanisms and structure to support our work going forward, including the creation of Hubs to address key topics like national policy and planning and SLCP source sectors. 

Our vision

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

Our mission

Our mission is to put the world on a pathway that rapidly reduces warming in the near-term and maximizes development, health, environmental and food security benefits. We will achieve this by catalysing fast action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants. The Coalition is the only global organization dedicated to this task. Our mission contributes to global efforts to decarbonize the economy, limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C, reduce air pollution, and achieve the related Sustainable Development Goals.
