Paris Agreement Reduction Targets by Country

The Paris Agreement, signed in 2015, is a global effort to combat climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Each country that signed the agreement has committed to lowering its emissions to help limit the planet`s warming to under 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

Each country`s reduction target varies based on its level of development and historic emissions. Let`s take a closer look at some of the major players in the Paris Agreement and their reduction targets.

China, the world`s largest emitter of greenhouse gases, has pledged to peak its emissions by 2030 and increase the proportion of non-fossil fuels in its primary energy consumption to 20%. India, the world`s third-largest emitter, has committed to reducing the emissions intensity of its GDP by 33-35% from 2005 levels by 2030. The United States, historically the largest contributor to global emissions, has pledged to reduce its emissions by 26-28% below 2005 levels by 2025. However, the US has since withdrawn from the Paris Agreement under the Trump administration.

The European Union as a whole has committed to reducing its emissions by at least 40% below 1990 levels by 2030. The United Kingdom, which recently left the EU, has pledged to reduce its emissions by 68% below 1990 levels by 2030.

Many other countries have also made significant commitments. Japan has pledged to reduce its emissions by 26% below 2013 levels by 2030. Canada has committed to reducing its emissions by 30% below 2005 levels by 2030. Brazil has pledged to reduce its emissions by 37% below 2005 levels by 2025.

Overall, the Paris Agreement represents a unified global effort to combat climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. While each country`s reduction target varies based on its level of development and historic emissions, the collective effort of all signatories is crucial in limiting the planet`s warming and preserving a sustainable future for generations to come.
