Low emission development pathway

The low emission development pathway curbs climate change, creates new economic opportunities and improves the health of human and natural systems.

Through this pathway, local and regional governments reduce environmentally harmful pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions from heating, cooling, lighting and food systems, and reduce noise. They reduce greenhouse gas emissions in all activities, especially in transport, waste and buildings. They aim for carbon neutral infrastructure and operations by mid-century, and usher in a renewable energy era, by committing to 100 percent renewable energy, divesting from fossil fuels and using nature-based solutions. They promote sustainable passenger and freight mobility, prioritize clean fuel policies and electric vehicles from renewable energy, and give priority to people-centered mobility solutions.
