To limit global temperature, rise to 1.5°C, we need to cut emissions in half by 2030 and reach net-zero by 2050. To date, 59 countries, representing 54% of global GHG emissions, have communicated net-zero emissions targets, including the world’s two largest emitters – the United States and China. The United Kingdom has also made achieving net-zero emission targets a top priority for the G7 Summit this June.

Join World Resources Institute on June 2 to discuss the big questions about net-zero targets, like which countries have them, how they differ, and how they relate to NDCs and long-term strategies. The presentation will also include a live demo of tracking tools on Climate Watch. Ample time will be provided for questions from the audience.
