Cities Race to Zero

By Charlotte Owen-Burge | July 8, 2021

Cities Race to Zero is a track of Race to Zero for cities only, where cities are uniting to demonstrate inclusive and resilient climate action in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement. Cities Race to Zero’s global city partners are C40, ICLEI, the Global Covenant of Mayors, CDP, UCLG, WRI and WWF.

Cities Race to Zero supports cities who sign onto the campaign by pledging to net-zero in the 2040s or sooner, or by mid-century at the latest, in line with global efforts to limit warming to 1.5C. Cities must set an interim target to achieve within the next decade which reflects a fair share of the 50% global reduction in CO2 by 2030.

Cities Race to Zero also ensures consistency with reporting metrics annually, cities should report to their usual or recommended reporting platform(CDP-ICLEI Track, MyCovenant or PCP BARC-Canada).

Cities Race to Zero has recruited over 1,000 cities to the Race to Zero.
