The G20 Sustainability Working Group under German leadership aims to develop a ‘G20 Climate and Energy Action Plan’ in the run up to the Hamburg summit in July, Eva Kracht of the German environment ministry (BMUB) said at an event by Climate Transparency in Berlin. “Issues of climate and energy are an integral part of the broader G20 agenda. To align our economies with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement could be a major innovation programme,” said Kracht. Details of a possible action plan will be discussed at future working group meetings. The outcome of the talks was unclear and depended in part on the policy of the incoming U.S. government, Kracht told Clean Energy Wire.
