Bold climate policy drives business action
The transition to an inclusive net-zero economy has begun. It’s achievable and brings significant benefits. Businesses are acting.
But it’s not happening fast enough. Policies that give clarity and certainty will encourage more businesses to make the necessary investments to achieve bold climate targets. This in turn leads to more ambitious policies, creating a positive policy-business ambition loop. Together we can limit global warming to 1.5°C and create a net-zero, just, and climate resilient economy.
Economies for People and Nature
More and more countries are stepping up with enhanced nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and commitments to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Now is the time for all countries to commit to the 1.5ºC trajectory, translate global commitments to policies and plans at the regional and national level, and deliver meaningful climate action.
Ensuring a green recovery from COVID-19 will help to drive sustainable economic growth as it builds resilience and creates new jobs as part of a just transition. This is a unique opportunity for governments, businesses and civil society to collaborate and show global solidarity in addressing both the COVID-19 and climate crises.
