WWF and many others are calling for action to stop the global temperature rise from reaching catastrophic levels.
So we welcome signs of positive intent at the recent Climate Ambition Summit, where 75 world leaders made key commitments to tackle the climate crisis. Several big emitters did not attend the summit so there is much still to do in advance of the UN global climate talks later this year in the UK (read our blog on what’s needed to make the talks a success). Businesses, cities and financial institutions have also joined a campaign that’s trying to build momentum for a shift to a decarbonized economy ahead of the talks. The Race to Zero campaign brings together coalitions of net-zero initiatives from around the world.
