Jointly, these experts develop a credible, comprehensive and comparable picture on G20 climate performance.

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.
