Halving emissions by 2030
Race to Zero is a global campaign rallying non-state actors – including companies, cities, regions, financial, educational, and healthcare institutions – to take rigorous and immediate action to halve global emissions by 2030 and deliver a healthier, fairer zero carbon world.
Since June 2020, over 11,000 members have joined the campaign and are committed to the same overarching goal: reducing emissions across all scopes swiftly and fairly in line with the Paris Agreement, with transparent action plans and robust near-term targets.
All members must meet robust science-aligned criteria, which was clarified and strengthened through an extensive consultation process in June 2022. Partner initiatives are responsible for helping to bring members to the starting line to credibly race to zero emissions.Criteria Governance
Race to Zero mobilizes a coalition of leading net zero initiatives, who are the 26 ‘Partners’ of the campaign. Partners are responsible for managing their members and keeping them in line with their own internal process as well as the Race to Zero criteria.
Over 11,000 non-state members have joined Race to Zero’s Partners, representing 8,307 companies, 595 financial institutions, 52 regions, 1136 cities, 1,125 educational institutions, 65 healthcare institutions and 29 other organisations, to collectively halve global emissions by 2030.Partners Members
