WWF Annual Review 2019 - 29

OUR GLOBAL WORK

FOCUS ON NATURE-BASED CLIMATE SOLUTIONS
Nature-based climate solutions could deliver up
to 30 per cent of the Paris Agreement's mitigation
goals by 2050 and increase resilience of the one
billion people most vulnerable to climate impacts.
We successfully highlighted their importance
inside and outside the 2019 UN Climate Action
Summit, including taking part in a global climate
march that attracted over 7.6 million people. We
also helped shape the agenda for the summit,
leading to commitments by 65 countries, 102
cities, 87 businesses and 15 investors to net-zero
greenhouse gas emissions before 2050.

NON-STATE ACTORS COMMIT TO REDUCE EMISSIONS
Through our Science-Based Targets initiative,
675 companies have now made plans to reduce
their greenhouse gas emissions in line with climate
science. Of these, 87 companies - whose annual
direct emissions are equivalent to 73 coal-fired
power plants - announced new targets aligned
with efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C. These
companies collectively represent over 4.2 million
employees from 28 sectors and are headquartered
in 27 countries. And 252 cities also promised
emissions reductions by joining our One Planet
City Challenge, up from 132 in 2018.

CLIMATE ACTION COALITIONS GROW
Together with our partners in the Alliances for
Climate Action network, we helped form new
coalitions in Vietnam and South Africa, bringing
together local governments, businesses,
investors and other organizations committed
to greater climate action in their countries. The
coalitions are starting to have impacts both by
setting their own climate targets and influencing
governments to align their national climate
plans with the 1.5°C goal of the Paris climate
agreement. Together with existing coalitions
in Argentina, Japan, Mexico and the US,
the network comprises more
