On September 5, 2018, the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate published their comprehensive 2018 report from The New Climate Economy, the commission's flagship project. The major finding of the analysis for this report is that "bold action [on climate change] could yield a direct economic gain of US$26 trillion through to 2030 compared with business-as-usual. And this is likely to be a conservative estimate." Visitors to this report will find an interactive and accessible presentation of its highlights and details, including a "map of action" showcasing a regional perspective on economic and climate factors, a "new growth agenda [...] highlight[ing] opportunities in five key economic areas," and detailed analyses, trends, and recommendations for each of those five areas. Interested readers may also download the full 200-page report in PDF format. The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate is an international initiative whose membership "comprises former heads of government and finance ministers and leaders in the fields of economics and business," such as Felipe Calderon Hinojosa, the former president of Mexico, and Kristalina Georgieva, CEO of the World Bank.
