Zero


Transitioning to a net-zero world is one of the greatest challenges humankind has faced. It calls for nothing less than a complete transformation of how we produce, consume, and move about. The energy sector is the source of around three-quarters of greenhouse gas emissions today and holds the key to averting the worst effects of climate change. Replacing polluting coal, gas and oil-fired power with energy from renewable sources, such as wind or solar, would dramatically reduce carbon emissions.

The growth in net-zero pledges has been accompanied by a proliferation of criteria with varying levels of robustness. To develop stronger and clearer standards for net-zero emissions pledges by non-State entities such as businesses, investors, cities and regions, and speed up their implementation, UN Secretary-General António Guterres in March 2022 established a High-Level Expert Group on the Net-Zero Emissions Commitments of Non-State Entities. The Expert Group presented its recommendations at COP27 on 8 November 2022.


Governments have the biggest responsibility in the transition to net-zero emissions by mid-century. But businesses, investors, cities, states and regions also needs to live up to their net-zero promises. A high-level expert group convened by the UN Secretary-General and chaired by former Canadian Minister Catherine McKenna developed stronger and clearer standards for net-zero emissions pledges by non-State entities.

In the lead-up to the COP26 climate talks, countries have begun revising their NDCs to strengthen climate action. With science affirming a shrinking window of opportunity, the plans must include urgent actions to cut carbon emissions and reach net zero by 2050.


The Net-Zero Standard provides a common, robust, and science-based understanding of net-zero. It gives business leaders clarity and confidence that their near- and long-term targets are aligned with climate science - helping to ensure a habitable planet for all.


Net-zero has rapidly moved to the mainstream, covering 91% of GDP and 83% of emissions worldwide. Despite this explosive growth, the definition of net-zero itself, as well as the path to get there, has been interpreted in different and inconsistent ways.


Without a common definition, targets can differ in terms of the sources of emissions included, the depth and speed at which emissions are reduced, and the timeframe of the target. This has fuelled confusion and accusations of greenwashing. The Net-Zero Standard addresses this problem by providing a clear, science-based definition of net-zero.


The Net-Zero Standard was developed with the intention of guiding corporate transition towards a state of net-zero in a way that is consistent with societal climate and sustainability goals and within the biophysical limits of the planet.


The SBTi also offers a simplified route for SMEs to set net-zero targets, who should refer to the SME FAQ for more information and use the SME target setting system when ready to set net-zero targets.


Companies are invited to commit to set net-zero targets by signing the SBTi Commitment Letter. The SBTi began validating targets in January 2022. To submit your net-zero target for validation, please use the SBTi Target Validation booking system, or for SMEs, use the streamlined SME target setting system.


The zero pollution vision for 2050 is for air, water and soil pollution to be reduced to levels no longer considered harmful to health and natural ecosystems, that respect the boundaries with which our planet can cope, thereby creating a toxic-free environment.


The Zero Pollution Monitoring and Outlook, published on 8 December 2022, offers a snapshot of the current state of the pollution in the EU, and answers questions on the pollution trends over the past years, and whether we are likely to achieve 2030 zero pollution targets.


The NCCoE initiated this project in collaboration with industry participants to demonstrate several approaches to a zero trust architecture applied to a conventional, general purpose enterprise information technology (IT) infrastructure on premises and in the cloud, which will be designed and deployed according to the concepts and tenets documented in NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-207, Zero Trust Architecture. The example implementations integrate commercial and open-source products that leverage cybersecurity standards and recommended practices to showcase the robust security features of zero trust architectures.


Launched at COP27, the Net Zero Guidelines tackle a major road block for a world where greenhouse gas emissions are reduced to the minimum and balanced by removals: the fragmented net zero governance landscape. Competing approaches and concepts for "Net Zero" sow confusion. The Guidelines provide a common reference for collective efforts, offering a global basis for harmonizing, understanding, and planning for net zero for actors at the state, regional, city and organizational level.


WorldGBC advocates for halving emissions of the building and construction sector by 2030 and the total decarbonisation of the sector by 2050. As we transition, we also recognise the value of offsets as a means to compensate for and neutralise the impacts of the sector, and to facilitate positive social and environmental impact in pursuit of overall net zero emissions.


Promoting the development and use of zero-emission airport ground transportation will help CARB achieve the emission reduction strategies outlined in the Mobile Source Strategy, State Implementation Plan, and Sustainable Freight Action Plan. Vehicles like airport shuttles that operate on fixed routes, have stop-and-go operations, maintain low average speeds, and are centrally maintained and fueled are ideal candidates for targeting zero emission electric technologies. CARB is in the process developing a regulation to accelerate the deployment of zero-emission airport transportation. More about this program


The Zero-Emission Technology Inventory (ZETI) tool is an interactive online resource to establish a current and shared knowledge base for worldwide commercially available offerings of zero-emission medium- and heavy-duty vehicles (MHDVs). The tool aims to provide fleets and governments with comprehensive information including regions where zero-emission brands are available for purchase, and the timeline over which additional models are expected to become available. Commercial availability is defined as availability for immediate production based on placed orders.


ZETI is a work in progress and will be continuously updated. Because ZETI is based on the best available data and might not accurately reflect the most recent model offerings, we would greatly appreciate your assistance in making this tool more comprehensive, accurate and robust. If you have models that are not yet in ZETI, please complete this form in order to update current listings or add new vehicles. For more information or feedback, email us at info@globaldrivetozero.org.
