What is the status of climate action globally, and how is each UNFCC Convention of the Parties (COP) impacting momentum?

Our COP and international analysts

Tracking net zero globally

The Net Zero Tracker aims to increase transparency and accountability of net zero targets pledged by nations, states and regions, cities and companies. We - along with our partners - collect data on targets set and on many factors that indicate the integrity of those targets — essentially, how serious the entity setting the target is about meaningfully cutting its net emissions to zero.

Go to the Net Zero Tracker website.

You can also find the Net Zero scorecard for countries, based on the Net Zero Tracker data, on our website, highlighting the global race to net zero.

Highlighting global leaders... and laggards

ECIU maintains a presence at the United Nations Conference of Parties (COP), to monitor and analyse the negotiations among national actors.

We've set out why the UK's emissions matter on the global stage, and where the momentum on net zero is accelerating, and what global climate impacts mean for the UK's food supply and energy security.

You can also view all our infographics on the history of COPs, the IPCC's asessment reports, the Paris Agreement, and more.
