Global Climate Action  

At the twenty-first session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) in Paris, it was agreed that mobilizing stronger and more ambitious climate action by all Parties and non-Party stakeholders is urgently required if the goals of the Paris Agreement are to be achieved.

In decision 1/CP.21, the commitments from all actors are recognized, including those launched through the Lima–Paris Action Agenda, as well as the urgent need to scale up the global response to climate change and support greater ambition from governments.

At COP 22 in Marrakech, a High-Level Event on Accelerating Climate Action was held to highlight outcomes from the Action Events throughout the conference and culminated with the launching of the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action; a new framework to catalyse and support climate action.

The Global Lighting Challenge is a race to reach cumulative global sales of 10 billion high- efficiency, high-quality, and affordable advanced lighting products, such as light-emitting diode (LED) lamps.

Roadmap and work plan

Yes – encourage commitments to the global transition of LED lighting from both public and private sector entities according to the GLC’s guiding principles. The GLC platform acts as a way to highlight leaders of this transition and inspire others to make commitments.


Since the launch of the GLC at COP21 we have accumulated commitments totaling over 8 billion lighting products and have tracked the deployment of around 200 million products to date.
