Unlocking Ambition: Top corporate and sub-national corporate commitments
- 28 September 2015
This report by CDP and The Climate Group reveals that over 170 major companies, states, regions, and cities around the world have committed to reducing their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80-100%, or procuring 100% of their power from renewable sources.
Bringing together information from several trusted sources, the findings demonstrate a trend toward increasingly ambitious climate action on the part of “non-state” actors (i.e. non-national governments), in the lead up to the Paris Climate Conference later this year.
The commitments included in the report are just the tip of the iceberg. The UNFCCC’s Non-State Actor Zone for Climate Action (NAZCA) now includes nearly 4,000 climate commitments by “non-state actors” – from states and regions pledging to end forest loss by 2030, to companies adopting an internal price on carbon and setting targets in line with climate science.
