Climate Transparency

Climate Transparency is a global partnership with a shared mission to stimulate a “race to the top” in climate action in G20 countries through enhanced transparency.

Joint assessment to increase transparency: Climate Transparency brings together the most authoritative climate assessments and expertise of stakeholders from G20 countries. Jointly, these experts develop a credible, comprehensive and comparable picture on G20 climate performance: The Brown to Green Report covers easy-to-use information on all major areas such as mitigation and climate finance and includes detailed fact sheets on all G20 countries. It is published on an annual basis on the eve of the G20 Summit.

Empowering change agents: Climate Transparency aims to increase awareness and peer pressure among policy-makers in G20 governments and influencers from civil society and the financial sector on a national and international level. Activities of Climate Transparency to empower change agents include international and country-specific media work, direct communication with decision makers and G20 engagement groups as well as workshops in G20 countries.

Climate Transparency was co-founded under the leadership of Peter Eigen (Founder of Transparency International) and Alvaro Umaña (former Minister of Environment and Energy of Costa Rica Costa Rica) in late 2014.

Climate Transparency is made possible through support from the the Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) through the International Climate Initiative, ClimateWorks Foundation and the World Bank Group.
