Summary

As part of the cooperative efforts on climate change between the Governments of United States and Mexico, through the Mexico Low Emissions Development Program (MLED), the task was given to McKinsey & Company in cooperation with SEMARNAT and INECC to update the analysis on Mexico’s GHG baseline, construct a new GHG abatement cost-curve, and create a portfolio of mitigation projects.

One of the main results in this analysis, it’s that by 2020, Mexico can achieve its internationally committed emission reduction target and reduce its annual emissions if it fully implements all 129 identified abatement levers.
