Climate and Clean Air Coalition partners are preparing for the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit on 23 September in New York, where we will respond to the call for increased ambition and fast action. On the eve of the Summit, our Ministers and leaders will meet at the Coalition's High Level Assembly to launch the Coalition's 2030 Vision for the Climate and Clean Air and commit to scaling up our impact.
The aim of the High Level Assembly is to galvanize action on air pollution and health, cooling efficiency, and agriculture and food systems in support of the Summit’s action areas, and beyond. During the Assembly, we will launch the Global Methane Alliance that builds on the Coalition’s Oil and Gas Methane Partnership and government commitments to regulate the industry’s methane emissions. We will also share progress on green freight and mobility and launch the report “Synergizing Actions on Environment and Climate: Best Practices in China and around the Globe” with China, Tsinghua University and UNEP.
France, who currently holds the G7 presidency, and other lead partners of the Coalition’s Efficient Cooling initiative, initiated the Biarritz Pledge for Fast Action on Efficient Cooling at the recent G7 Summit. This exciting pledge will contribute to cooling commitments made at the UN Climate Action Summit.
Together we will raise ambition!
Several countries attending the G7 meeting in Biarritz, France, pledged to take immediate steps to improve energy efficiency in the cooling sector while phasing down HFCs.
Pollution generated by ageing diesel vehicles will soon be eliminated following the adoption of a ground-breaking new law – the country’s first to target fuel quality.
A pilot project in the state of Penang has diverted nearly 800 tonnes of organic waste from landfill and resulted in avoided methane emissions amounting to 700 tonnes of CO2e.
