Executive Summary

The scope of the paper is mitigation - the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions - primarily focusing on emissions relating to fossil fuel combustion and industrial activity. These sectors account for some 65 percent of total anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, and significant action in these areas would have a major impact. In addition, the fact that these sectors are dominated by large, long-life assets means that delaying action increases the longer-term costs of reducing emissions.
