The COP21 Calculator


Climate-KIC has developed, in collaboration with the Financial Times, the COP21 Calculator, an interactive tool showing the effectiveness of country’s COP21 pledges to prevent climate change.

The COP21 Calculator shows that we are facing a colossal, but not impossible challenge. The acceptance of that challenge is vital in order for politicians and policymakers to set an ambitious global deal at COP21.

For the first time, using the COP21 Calculator, anyone can see what would happen if countries curbed emissions in line with their pledges. The Calculator shows that the emissions pathway from the combined pledges could place the world on a trajectory of 4 degrees of warming by 2100.

Our Journey to Paris is not just virtual. Climate-KIC is an official observer organisation during COP21 in Paris, and is represented at a range of events during and in the run up to the summit.

During the journey to Paris and at COP21, we will be working to shine a spotlight on the people and partners who are leading the way to help cities and businesses chart a path to successful low carbon transition and vibrant economic growth.
