They have recently issued this press release:

The report on which these recommendations are based was called “2020: The Climate Turning Point”.

As we are all aware, the declared aim of Paris, to keep warming below 2C, was not met by actions. Even if we assume that CO2 emissions have any significant effect on temperatures, emissions would have to fall off the edge of a cliff after 2030 to meet that target.

Mission 2020 want drastic action to start before 2020, in order to make this plummet not quite as steep.
