Halving emissions before 2030 through exponential climate action and solutions
Accredited partner of the United Nation’s Race to Zero campaign.
Ørsted announced today that it has joined forces with a growing group of global corporations that are driving climate action throughout global supply chains in line with science-based emissions reduction targets.
Hosted at the Sthlm+50 Climate Hub with We Don’t Have Time, with over 31 million viewers on Twitter from more than 160 countries, and 1000+ delegates in physical attendance. You can re-watch and re-tweet the Exponential Race to Zero events (Green energy, Food & Land, Transport) and Exponential Climate Action Summit VI.
RACE TO ZERO: As decision makers and business leaders meet for Stockholm+50, the Exponential Roadmap Initiative will shine a light on the game-changers in energy efficiency, green energy, travel & transport, plant-based food, regenerative agriculture, protecting & restoring nature and maximizing positive impacts from digitalization.
HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW: To reach the global climate goal of halving emissions by 2030, we can’t leave behind small-to-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). But helping them will require collaboration and support from the large corporations that are often SME’s most important clients.
What We Do
The Exponential Roadmap Initiative brings together innovators, disruptors and transformers taking action in line with 1.5°C. Our purpose is to accelerate exponential climate action and solutions through groundbreaking projects, with the mission to halve emissions before 2030.
Endorse the 1.5°C Business Playbook, and are committed to: halving their own emissions and the emissions in their value chain before 2030 towards net zero, integrating climate deeply in business strategy and influencing climate action in society.
800 BN USD + in revenue
Together the member companies represent over 800 BN USD in revenue and 1.7 million employees.
Halve by 2030
Members contribute to the global scale out of the narrative to halve global greenhouse gas emissions before 2030 through exponential climate action and solutions.
“The science makes clear that we need a fundamental reshaping of business and finance. Every board and every company must show a credible strategy to align with 1.5°C. This Playbook is an excellent guide for the necessary journey to net zero emissions, to prepare business for the fastest economic transition in history and help them drive it. It’s a guide for preserving a more liveable planet for future generations.”
Convenor, Mission 2020
“The 1.5°C Business Playbook provides a great framework aligned with the Race to Zero campaign, available today for companies to use. Focusing on simplicity and speed, it will help companies to halve emissions by 2030 towards net-zero well before 2050.”

“The only pathway left is massive emissions reductions across all business sectors in the next decade. We show that this is achievable,”
Director, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Executive Director, Stockholm Resilience Centre
“As a sustainability pioneer, we have been both an advocate of climate action and investing in research and development of climate solutions. We believe leveraging technology, such as digitalisation and 5G, will be fundamental to halve emissions every decade. Ericsson have cut our own emissions by 50% and are working to meet further reductions. We have demonstrated solutions that help make it possible. Now other companies and policy-makers must act to scale demonstrated solutions to enable exponential reduction of carbon emissions globally.”
“Businesses must align with the 1.5°C pathway if we want to address the climate emergency. The 1.5°C Business Playbook provides an action plan for businesses of all sizes to develop and urgently implement ambitious climate strategies.”
CEO, We Mean Business coalition
“This roadmap uniquely focuses on three things. The immediate priorities – reaching peak emissions in 2020 and racing to cut emissions in half by 2030. How we scale the new low-carbon solutions exponentially and how we need to think in terms of systems transformation of the whole economy. We must now reach a critical mass of countries, cities, companies and citizens with the new compass direction to enable a virtuous circle of change. Then it is achievable.”

“Humanity is taking grave risks with the stability of the Earth’s life support system as global average surface temperatures continues to rise. We now need the fastest economic transition in history.”
