Overview
The 2050 Pathways Platform was launched in 2016 following the adoption of the Paris Agreement and its call on countries to elaborate long-term low-emissions development strategies. The 2050 Platform’s main intent is to create greater ambition in the short and medium term, through the development and elaboration of these long-term strategies coherent with Paris’ net-zero emissions objective. With this in mind, the Platform was created with a group of front-runner countries, cities, regions, and private companies to form a coalition around the strategic importance of long-term planning.

ECF advances policy in the areas of energy, transportation, buildings, low-carbon finance, industry, and energy efficiency. The organization works to develop policy at the local, national, and European Union level. They also support international efforts to mitigate carbon emissions through the United Nations and G20.
