G20 Scorecard of Fossil Fuel Funding: Brazil
Brazil has scored the highest among the non-Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) G20 countries, thanks to its relatively lower levels of support to coal production, fossil fuel-based power, and fossil fuel use. It has also made some progress by reducing its SOE investments in fossil fuels by 3% relative to the 2014–2016 average. However, it lacks transparency and continues to heavily support oil and gas production.
