After 2022, growth in CO2 emissions essentially flattens to 0.2% a year before peaking in 2032. By 2040 emissions remain around 3 Gt above 2020 levels, as abatement efforts are offset by the continued use of coal for power generation in Asia's growth economies.

The largest incremental emissions reductions will be realized in power sector decarbonization and alternative transport fuels in the OECD.
