IEMA lead joins Race to Zero group
Race To Zero is a global campaign to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions and investors for a healthy, resilient zero-carbon COVID-19 recovery.
It mobilises leading net-zero initiatives representing more than 454 cities, 23 regions, 1,397 businesses, 74 major investors and 569 universities. These ‘real economy’ actors join 120 countries in the largest ever alliance committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Led by the High-Level Climate Champions for Climate Action, Nigel Topping and Gonzalo Muñoz, Race To Zero mobilises actors outside national governments to join the Climate Ambition Alliance, launched at the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit 2019 by Sebastián Piñera, the president of Chile.
The Champions have established an Expert Peer Review Group to review Race to Zero partner applications and provide recommendations to the Champions. IEMA fellow and policy lead Nick Blyth has joined the group, adding an IEMA contribution to this initiative in the build-up to COP26.
