Wedging the Gap!

Wedging the Gap - figure_a

Published: 18/06/2012

Ecofys experts published an article in NATURE CLIMATE CHANGE. Ecofys proposes a new approach — called ‘wedging the gap’ — consisting of 21 coherent major initiatives that together would trigger greenhouse-gas emission reductions of around 10 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (Gt CO2e) by 2020. This supports and goes substantially beyond the emission reductions proposed by national governments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The Ecofys approach would play a significant part in bridging the gap between current emission trends and what is necessary to put the world on a path that would limit global temperature increase to 2 °C above pre-industrial levels.
