Towards Decarbonising Transport 2023

A Stocktake on Sectoral Ambition in the G20

This publication analyses the current state of decarbonisation and climate ambition in the transport sectors of G20 countries. G20 countries are responsible for the lion’s share of global transport emissions.

In light of India’s G20 presidency in 2023, and with emerging economies at the helm of the intergovernmental forum in 2022 (Indonesia), 2024 (Brazil), and 2025 (South Africa), this report seeks to support global discussions surrounding sustainable transport and the effort to achieve the goals stipulated in international climate accords, especially the Paris Agreement and the Glasgow Declaration.

The document is an update of the report “Towards Decarbonising Transport 2018 – A Stocktake on Sectoral Ambition in the G20”, published by Agora Verkehrswende, GIZ, and REN21.
