Race to Zero Circle – leading the global shift to a decarbonized economy –
What is Race To Zero?
Race To Zero is a global campaign to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions, investors for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs, and unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth. All members are committed to the same overarching goal: achieving net zero emissions by 2050 at the very latest.
It was launched in June 2020 by UNFCCC and led by the High-Level Climate Champions for Climate Action – Nigel Topping and Gonzalo Muñoz.
It mobilizes a coalition of leading net zero initiatives (official partners), representing 454 cities, 23 regions, 1,397 businesses, 74 of the biggest investors, and 569 universities. Collectively these actors now cover nearly 25% global CO2 emissions and over 50% GDP.
What is JCI Race to Zero Circle?
Race to Zero Circle, a member circle of the Japan Climate Initiative (JCI), is one of the official partners of Race To Zero and help JCI members participate in Race To Zero. JCI members can participate in Race To Zero by joining Race to Zero Circle with a pledge to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 at the very latest. In order for Japan to contribute to the decarbonization of the world, we will support our members’ efforts toward the earliest possible net-zero emissions by 2050.
