Creating Markets for Climate Business

Creating Markets for Climate Business identifies seven industry sectors that can make a crucial difference in catalyzing private investment: renewable energy, off-grid solar and energy storage, agribusiness, green buildings, urban transportation, water, and urban waste management. Already, more than $1 trillion in investments are flowing into climate-related projects in these areas. But trillions more can be triggered by creating the right business conditions in emerging markets.



State and Trends of Carbon Pricing 2017

The report explores how climate finance and climate markets can be used in an integrated approach to enable domestic policies, including carbon pricing, to mobilize the incremental low-carbon investments that will be needed by 2030. With eight new carbon pricing initiatives in place since early 2016, there now are 42 national and 25 sub-national jurisdictions putting a price on carbon emissions. This, however, still leaves 85% of global emissions uncovered by carbon pricing.



World Bank Doing Business Colombia 2018

Doing Business captures several important dimensions of the regulatory environment as it applies to local rms. It provides quantitative indicators on regulation for starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, protecting minority investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts and resolving insolvency. Doing Business also measures features of labor market regulation.

Greening the Blue report 2017

In this year's report, 67 UN entities report their greenhouse gas emissions for 2016. Of which, 56 provided data on waste and 39 were climate neutral. In addition to detailing the UN's environmental impacts in 2016, the Greening the Blue report also showcases a number of UN entities that are making an effort to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and improve overall environmental performance.




The Climate Science Special Report

This CSSR Report is designed to capture that new information and build on the existing body of science in order to summarize the current state of knowledge and provide the scientific foundation for the Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4). The last few years have also seen record-breaking, climate-related weather extremes, the three
warmest years on record for the globe, and continued decline in arctic sea ice. These trends are expected to continue in the future over climate (multidecadal) timescales.
