Today three countries, the United States, Canada, and Mexico, announced targets and strategies to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century (2050).
Germany aims to reduce its emissions 80-95 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. It's the first country to release a long-term emissions plan, with more countries likely to follow in the coming days.
Bangalore’s Kempegowda International Airport plans to become the largest solar-producing airport in India, generating 14.6 megawatts (MW) of solar power. That's enough to offset 17,000 tons of carbon dioxide, the equivalent of taking more than 3,200 vehicles off the road each year.
Making our infrastructure cleaner and more sustainable could add as little as 5 percent to upfront costs, which could be fully offset by lower operating costs. WRI Board member and former President of Mexico Felipe Calderón reveals four ways to unlock capital for low-carbon infrastructure.

"No one's actually making money from coal-fired power plants in the United States right now," said David Crane at WRI's MindShare event. That may seem a strange sentiment coming from a man who led NRG Energy, one of America's biggest power companies, but Crane is far from the typical energy exec.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi committed to increase India's solar power to 100 gigawatts by 2022, leaps and bounds higher than its current 5.8 GW. So is the target achievable?
In the last two years, 160 countries have publicly announced clean energy plans. Ahead of the Clean Energy Ministerial next week, here's a look at what countries have committed to and the potential impact of these plans.
For big corporations, buying renewable energy is harder than it should be. That’s why Facebook and Microsoft are inviting collaboration with utilities to break down market barriers. These iconic brands are among 60 companies participating in the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance.
Large, private sector energy customers wanting to buy more renewable energy are already driving change in electricity markets by scaling up clean power delivered through the grid. More renewables in countries’ power grids will accelerate progress toward emissions-reduction targets put forth in Paris.
