2020 UN Global Climate Action Award-Winning Activities

The 2020 winners of the UN Global Climate Action Awards are shining examples of climate change action underway around the world. Each of the 13 activities touches on one of three areas: action that fosters women’s leadership, action that unlocks climate finance, and action that achieves climate neutrality. Together, the 2020 Lighthouse Activities are helping communities, cities, businesses, governments and institutions move towards a low-carbon, highly resilient future.

The award-winning projects demonstrate leadership on climate change by nations, businesses, investors, cities, regions and civil society as a whole. They range from the Caribbean's only carbon-neutral hotel, to the world's first platform fully dedicated to green bonds, to the first all-women solar team in Lebanon.
