The Executive Series at Climate Week NYC this year kicked off with our high-level opening day roundtable session: Putting accountability at the heart of net zero. Amid flagging momentum, pushback on climate commitments and the competing and interconnected crises associated with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, maintaining trust in climate commitments more than ever means demonstrating real accountability and delivering on ambition.
We gathered leaders from business, government, and civil society to address this issue, pressing them to share the specific challenges they’ve faced and their solutions to demonstrating accountability and building trust around climate commitments in the climate decade.
Show intent - we must rebuild trust and credibility in Net Zero commitments and build confidence in self-disclosed data
Demonstrate integrity - Net Zero strategies must be robust and demonstrate clear short-, medium-, and long-term targets that are achievable
Be accountable - delivering and demonstrating progress and holding ourselves accountable is increasingly critical
- Embrace data as the proving point of accountability
- Share best practice and collaborate
- Recognise climate change as a social issue
- Be bold and demonstrate ambition
- Talk the talk and walk the walk
