Germany and Mexico released their voluntary peer reviews of fossil fuel subsidies under the G-20, during the twenty-third Conference of Parties (COP23) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). This publication is a step towards more transparency on what the G20 calls “inefficient fossil fuel subsidies”. Germany’s peer review identified twenty-two measures that favour fossil fuels in the form of tax breaks and direct budgetary transfers, totalling USD 17.6 billion (EUR 14.9 billion) in 2016; Mexico’s peer review report identified ten subsidies worth USD 2.6 billion (MXN 50 billion) in 2016.
