Halving emissions before 2030 through exponential climate action and solutions
Accredited partner of the United Nation’s Race to Zero campaign
The 1.5°C Business Playbook is a guideline for exponential climate action. Supported and used by some of the most influential and innovative companies in the world with a combined yearly revenue of 900 billion dollars.

Grounded in the latest climate science, the roadmap outlines a path to reach net zero emissions from the land sector by 2030 through natural climate solutions. Produced by Conservation International together with Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, WWF and the Exponential Roadmap Initiative, the roadmap establishes a new “Carbon Law for Nature” – a benchmark for emissions from the land sector each year.

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.
The Exponential Roadmap Initiative is an accredited partner of the United Nations’ Race To Zero and a founding partner of the 1.5°C Supply Chain Leaders and the SME Climate Hub. The initiative has created the 1.5°C Business Playbook, a guideline for exponential climate action.
“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
“We need to halve global emissions by 2030 and become nature positive at the same time to tackle the climate emergency. We have the answers in our hands – we just need sharper action. The solutions to halve emissions by 2030 exist in all sectors and many are scaling exponentially. This is the moment to scale even faster and make a pull-in. The companies that realize that today are the winners of tomorrow.”
CEO & Co-Founder, Exponential Roadmap Initiative
“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.”
