B20, Think Tanks and civil society: G20 should take lead in implementing Paris Agreement

B20 and its partner engagement groups T20 and C20 call on the G20 to seize the opportunities offered through ambitious climate action and collaboration and support climate resilience, especially of the poorest and most vulnerable populations and countries.

The G20 is a vital forum for international economic cooperation. It represents about two thirds of the global population, more than three quarters of global GDP, and is responsible for approximately 80 percent of global energy use and CO2 emissions.

The G20 members should take the lead in implementing the Paris Agreement and drive towards effective and globally converging carbon pricing mechanisms. Moreover, the group should enable financial markets to deliver on sustainable development and further expand the work of the G20 Green Finance Study Group.
