Hey there, Climate Enthusiasts!
Greetings and welcome to the thirteenth edition of Carbon Quantified! We are excited to share our analysis on Direct Air Capture, G20, and Global Climate Finance.
Overview of the Twelfth Edition:
In our thirteenth-edition newsletter, our unwavering commitment to exploring pivotal sustainability topics and enhancing accountability remains at the forefront.
First, we delve into the “Role of Direct Air Capture in Climate Change Mitigation,” a groundbreaking technology with the potential to revolutionize our approach to carbon removal. Discover how this innovation is shaping climate change mitigation efforts.
Secondly, we examine “G20, A Green Development Pact for a Sustainable Future,” shedding light on the global efforts to foster a sustainable future through international cooperation and green development. Additionally, our data-driven article, “Global Climate Finance with a Focus on Multilateral Climate Funds”, provides illuminating insights into the world of climate finance, particularly highlighting the role of Multilateral Climate Funds in mobilizing resources for climate action on a global scale. Discover how these funds operate, their impact, and their significance in driving climate initiatives.
In addition to our feature articles, we are excited to announce two important updates:
- Upcoming Webinar: Join us for an upcoming webinar on “Unlocking Plastic Credits Market: EPR and Verra Methodology Solutions,” where we will explore the intricacies of the plastic credits market and solutions for effective Environmental Product Responsibility (EPR).
- New Website Launch: Our new website is set to go live soon, offering even more detailed insights into what Calculus Carbon is all about. Stay tuned for a richer, more informative online experience.
In the subsequent sections, we will delve deeper into these vital topics, offering profound insights, data-driven analysis, and expert perspectives. Our mission remains focused on empowering stakeholders to make informed decisions and catalyze positive environmental impact.
Calculus IQ: Global Climate Finance with a focus on Multilateral Climate Funds
Global climate financing encompasses diverse financial mechanisms and investments addressing climate challenges and fostering global sustainable development. It tackles greenhouse gas reduction, climate resilience, and a low-carbon economy. In 2020, climate finance reached $640 billion, marking a modest 2.6% increase from 2019. However, this growth remains insufficient to meet the escalating climate crisis, highlighting the urgency for more substantial investments to mitigate its effects and secure a sustainable future.
Role of Direct Air Capture in Climate Change Mitigation
Climate change poses an imminent threat to our planet, necessitating urgent and innovative solutions. One such solution gaining prominence is Direct Air Capture (DAC), a technology designed to extract carbon dioxide (CO2) directly from the atmosphere, irrespective of its location. Unlike traditional carbon capture methods that target emissions at specific sources, such as factories or power plants, DAC allows us to capture CO2 from the air itself. In this article, we will explore the significance of DAC in the fight against climate change, its benefits, and recent advancements in the field.
G20: Green Development Pact for a Sustainable Future
The G20 summit hosted by India in 2023 brought world leaders together to address critical global challenges. Under the theme “Green Development Pact for a Sustainable Future,” the summit tackled pressing issues and outlined a comprehensive strategy for a more environmentally responsible and equitable future. In this article, we take a closer look at the key highlights from this historic gathering.
