Towards More Climate Action at the G7
Recommendations for the German Presidency
Germany took over the G7 Presidency from the United Kingdom at the start of 2022. Climate stands on top of the G7's agenda as global greenhouse gas emissions continue to grow and delivering progress on the Paris Agreement becomes more urgent. The G7, as some of the world's most prosperous industrial nations, have a pivotal role to play in accelerating the global shift to a climate-neutral world economy. In 2021, at Carbis Bay, all G7 members have committed themselves to reaching climate-neutrality. This year's G7 must be all about delivering on these commitments and following up with concrete action for reaching climate neutrality among and beyond the G7 countries. In cooperation with E3G and WWF, Ecologic Institute is developing recommendations for the German Presidency to enhance climate action at the G7.
In this project, Ecologic Institute, in partnership with WWF and E3G, brings together a select group of think-tanks and NGOs to discuss priorities for the German G7 presidency. Based on policy briefs by E3G and Ecologic Institute, experts in the German climate policy field discuss key issues around climate at the G7 to identify and concretise priorities and action items for the German presidency. Key topics include decarbonising industry, climate partnerships and their financing, climate clubs, and loss and damage.
