Report: Cities need $375 billion in green investment

Report: Cities need $375 billion in green investment | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

The world's cities must invest around $375 billion in climate action and low carbon infrastructure over the next four years in order to avoid catastrophic global climate change, the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group has warned.
Published this week, a report by consultancy Arup on behalf of the C40 group argues that without serious action before 2020, the world will have "locked-in" future emissions that will see global temperatures surpass the 2 degrees Celsius mark set out as the upper "safe" limit in the Paris Agreement. 

EcoVadis's insight:

City leaders aim to take action on climate change regardless of who is in the White House.
