2DEGREES INSTITUTE


MISSION STATEMENT


The 2° Institute mission is to develop and support strategies that empower people to make the behavioural and lifestyle changes needed to prevent our planet from warming by 2 degrees Celsius. The end goal is to reverse global warming.


The Aim  is to offer a clear and achievable roadmap for individuals to drastically reduce their carbon footprint that is commensurate with the scale of the problem.



IWHY 2° CELSIUS?


The historic Paris Climate Conference of December 2015 resulted in 197 countries resolving to limit the planet's average global temperature increase to no more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels to avoid a critical threshold above which the planet could experience irreversible catastrophic impacts. To achieve this, governments and citizens in these countries will each need to do their part to reduce their own carbon footprint in order to keep the temperature increase below 2°C.ool.



AWARENESS


Climate Data for the Public

The 2° Institute offers interactive real-time climate graphs to aid educators, researchers and the general public in better understanding greenhouse gas levels and the role they play in climate change.
