About

In May 2017 the Arctic Council set targets to limit black carbon emissions to between 25% to 33% below 2013 levels by 2030. The Arctic Council Goal on black carbon is the first of its kind, is based on sound science and emission inventories, and is a goal-setting solution that can be implemented at a global scale. The Arctic Council’s recommendations are readily available and can be adapted and implemented in any country, to produce significant emissions reductions.
