Exponential Roadmap Initiative

The Exponential Roadmap Initiative is for innovators, transformers and disruptors taking action in line with 1.5°C, with the mission to halve emissions before 2030 through exponential climate action and solutions. The Exponential Roadmap Initiative is an accredited partner of  United Nations’ Race To Zero, TED Countdown and a founding partner of the 1.5°C Supply Chain Leaders and the SME Climate Hub

Halving by 2030: The UN report on 1.5°C  concludes that we need to keep global warming to a maximum of 1.5°C to avoid high risk of catastrophic consequences for people and our living environment. To do so, the world needs to follow up peak emissions in 2020 with halving of emissions every decade until 2050, starting with the first halving by 2030. This simple rule of thumb, called the Carbon Law, can be applied to everyone: companies, cities, nations and citizens.

In 2018, science based cross-sector collaboration Exponential Roadmap was launched. It highlights 36 solutions with exponential scaling potential to halve global greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Scaling of solutions comes from sharp policy, from climate leadership by companies and cities and from a finance and technology shift towards green solutions with exponential potential. The roadmap shows how we can build a stronger, more resilient and future-proof global economy and increase human prosperity and health – within the planetary boundaries. 

A spin-off from the Exponential Roadmap, the 1.5°C Business Playbook was launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2020, together with Christiana Figueres and Johan Rockström. The Playbook, produced by leading experts and business stakeholders, provides a framework for all companies to reach net-zero emissions rapidly through the adoption of an exponential trajectory of at least halving their greenhouse gas emissions every decade to approach net zero by 2050, and integrating climate in their business strategy. The Playbook focuses on simplicity and speed and is anchored in the latest science.

Since its launch, more than 65 organisations have joined the Exponential Roadmap Initiative, committing to halve 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, as outlined by the 4 pillar framework in the 1.5°C Business Playbook.
