Senegal as an LNG Exporter? Stranded asset risks in the transition
Publication date 18 Dec 2023

Despite recent spikes in the global price of LNG, Senegal's fossil fuel hopes may be dashed with global trends. Scaled up renewable energy deployment, and electrification of gas end uses are increasingly likely to reduce global LNG demand. Before going all in on offshore oil and gas development, it is important that Senegal considers transition risks, its relative competitiveness, and what alternatives the Just Energy Transition Partnership may offer.

From Rhetoric to Reality: Investigating Financial Institutions' Net Zero Portfolio Commitments
Publication date 18 Sep 2023

Financial institutions increasingly commit to net zero portfolio targets. Our analysis questions their internal climate value and their real-world impact. Instead, we recommend that financial institutions focus on supporting the transition of economies and economic actors.

Deutsche LNG-Ausbaupläne führen zu Überkapazität und gefährden Klimaschutzziele
Publication date 17 Mar 2023

Dieser Bericht liefert einen Review und eine klimapolitische Einordnung der aktuellen Studienlage zu neuen und geplanten LNG-Importkapazitäten in Deutschland.

Plans for German liquefied natural gas terminals are massively oversized
Publication date 13 Dec 2022

The study compares Germany's plans for the expansion of LNG import infrastructure with the actual need for imports. The analysis concludes that Germany's plans are massively oversized and not compatible with the path to climate neutrality. Germany's climate protection goals require a significant reduction in gas consumption, and the planned infrastructure either risks large financial losses due to low utilisation, or calls into question compliance with the path to climate neutrality.

Pläne für deutsche Flüssigerdgas-Terminals sind massiv überdimensioniert
Publication date 08 Dec 2022

Die Studie vergleicht die Pläne Deutschlands für den Ausbau der LNG-Importinfrastruktur mit dem tatsächlichen Bedarf an Importen. Die Analyse kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass die Pläne Deutschlands massiv überdimensioniert und nicht mit dem Pfad zur Klimaneutralität vereinbar sind. Deutschlands Klimaschutzziele verlangen eine deutliche Reduktion des Gasverbrauchs und die geplante Infrastruktur riskiert entweder große finanzielle Verluste durch eine geringe Auslastung, oder stellt das Einhalten des Pfads zur Klimaneutralität in Frage.

Making finance consistent with climate goals?
Publication date 16 Nov 2022

One year after the founding of GFANZ, this report takes stock of asset owners and managers climate commitments, how asset management decisions relate to emissions in the real economy, and what institutional investors are doing to implement their climate strategies.

Transition risks, mitigation options, and the global protein transformation in the context of Argentina’s agriculture sector
Publication date 22 Mar 2022

Identifies transition risks faced by Argentina’s export-oriented agriculture industry, evaluates emissions reduction options in livestock and cropping systems, and explores economic opportunities with the protein transition.

Working Paper: Transition risks for Argentina’s agricultural sector
Publication date 05 Nov 2021

The Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA) and NewClimate analyse the transition risks faced by Argentina’s export-oriented agriculture sector in the context of increasingly carbon-constrained commodity trade. The report suggests that Argentina should find ways of reconciling plans to promote its agri-export model with its stated climate ambition. By exploring and implementing mitigation options that help the sector reduce its emission intensity, Argentina can strengthen its position as a key exporter of agriculture commodities on world markets. Main findings: Argentina’s export...

Paris alignment of gas?
Publication date 20 Oct 2021

Financial institutions' current investments in gas reflect an underestimation of climate risks, including the extent to which gas value chain investments pose a threat to achieving 1.5°C. This report surveys these risks, outlining the need for much tighter restrictions on lending for all parts of the gas value chain. Key Findings: Rapid and far-reaching decarbonisation of the energy system is essential to achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement. Of particular importance is the “critical decade” between 2020 and 2030, where emissions need to fall 7.6% every year. Committed emissions...

SCREEN - Sustainable development and climate action green recovery screening tool and framework
Publication date 25 Aug 2021

The SCREEN tool and the underlying COVID-19 recovery framework aim to help policymakers to identify and analyse green recovery measures that can effectively cater to the distinct recovery needs and development priorities of developing countries. Main findings: Climate action and COVID-19 recovery in developing countries Since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, multiple organisations have published green recovery frameworks, building on a growing body of research evaluating the effectiveness of different policy archetypes. Green recovery frameworks, and their respective assessment criteria, are...
