Aiming for Zero: Business leadership for a net zero economy

 

Prompted by the Paris Agreement and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at a faster pace, governments across the world are reviewing their initial ambitions, and looking at what is required to deliver on the goal of ‘net zero’ emissions. Achieving this goal requires further discussion, with every sector and region involved. Business has a unique and crucial role to play, and as public debates gather momentum at national, European and international levels, businesses will be expected to change their operations in order to deliver on this vision.

The Corporate Leaders Groups are calling on governments to set net zero goals in line with the Paris Agreement, and are working to lead their business peers to work with governments on what a net zero economy could look like.
