Better Growth, Better Climate: The New Climate Economy Report

Share

A major new report from the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate argues that countries at all levels of income now have the opportunity to build lasting economic growth at the same time as reducing the immense risks of climate change, but they must act now.

Better Growth, Better Climate: The New Climate Economy Report finds that over the next 15 years, about USD 90 trillion will be invested in infrastructure in the world’s cities, agriculture and energy systems. The world has an unprecedented opportunity to drive investment in low-carbon growth, bringing multiple benefits including jobs, health, business productivity and quality of life.

The report sets out a detailed 10-point Global Action Plan of practical recommendations that can achieve greater prosperity and a safer climate at the same time. These measures will all lead to net benefits to the economy, even before their climate benefits are considered.
