The Brown to Green Report 2017 by Climate Transparency provides a comprehensive overview of the G20 countries, whether - and how well - they are doing on the journey to transition to a low-carbon economy. It assesses the main trends for the G20 in emissions, climate policy performance, finance, and decarbonisation. The report summarises and compares the findings presented in Climate Transparency's country profiles for each G20 country (incl. the EU). Findings are based on publicly available data by renowned institutions. The country profiles and a technical note on data sources and methodology can be downloaded on
