SDG 13 Climate Action
The United Nations has formulated 17 SDGs. SDG 13 Climate Action comprises taking urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
The UN follows the strong recommendations of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to keep global warming under 1.5o C in the year 2040. In the Paris agreement, a worldwide effort is made to reduce CO2 emissions by 49% before the year 2030 compared to the year 1990.
In order to achieve this CO2 reduction, the use of energy from fossil fuels must be reduced swiftly and simultaneously the use of energy from renewable sources will have to grow considerably; the energy transition.
