1.5°C Business Playbook
Focusing on simplicity and speed, the 1.5°C Business Playbook helps organisations to set a 1.5°C aligned strategy and move to action
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.
Exponential Roadmap Initiative:
“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.”
