  • Greenhouse gas emissions reached a new high last year, putting us on track for an average temperature rise of 3 degrees Celsius.
  • COVID-19 lockdowns are likely to result in just a 0.01C reduction in global warming by 2050.
  • However, green investment under government stimulus packages could cut up to 25% off emissions predicted in 2030.
