This study provides a clear picture of the state of G20 transport emissions, analyses already existing approaches for decarbonising the transport sector and stresses the urgency of putting ambitious climate action on the political agenda.

It includes factsheets on each G20 member that shed light on the specific situation and challenges in each country, including existing goals and efforts. The report concludes by comparing stated ambition with implemented policies and actions while also considering required global reductions in the transport sector to keep the global temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius.

The publication is an update to the 2017 report. It focuses on new developments and highlights the need to integrate the power and transport sectors.

The report was developed in cooperation with Agora Verkehrswende and the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21) in order to spotlight the crucial importance of the transport sector for climate policy.
