Join the UN Race to Zero

The Exponential Roadmap Initiative brings together transformative and disruptive businesses, committed to halving emissions before 2030 towards net-zero, integrating climate in business strategy and influencing climate action in society, as described by the 4 pillars of the 1.5°C Business Playbook.

Businesses who join will gain recognition from the United Nations’ Race to Zero, the largest ever alliance committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by no later than 2050.
