Mexico committed to reduce its emissions 22 percent by 2030. New WRI research outlines how the country can get there--and save billions doing it.
WRI established its office in Mexico in 2016. As the EMBARQ program in Mexico for the past 13 years we've been working on urban mobility, transport policy, sustainable urban development, road safety, climate and energy efficiency. WRI México will continue working on Cities, and open Climate, Energy and Forests. Learn more about our work in Mexico.

A climate change strategy for all of North America could transform how we address a defining issue of our time. The move would be unprecedented, but it is more possible than ever. Heads of state from Canada, Mexico and the United States have the opportunity at the North American Leadership Summit in Ottawa to begin the process by setting out strong continent-wide climate actions.
Eight recommended actions can improve energy efficiency in buildings to unlock a “triple win” and address economic, environmental and social challenges in world’s urban areas
WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 11, 2016) — A new policy roadmap from World Resources Institute, Accelerating Building Efficiency: Eight Actions for Urban Leaders, shows how city-level leaders worldwide can overcome barriers to improving building efficiency and reduce energy demand through policy and market action. WRI finds that better energy efficiency in buildings can unlock a “triple win” of economic, environmental and social benefits for cities, and taking action now can avoid locking in decades of inefficiency.
