Businesses have a critical role to play in the transition to a sustainable, climate-safe future. Robust and coherent emission reduction targets grounded in science can ensure their actions lead to the transformation we need. We are witnessing how corporate leaders are shifting gears and aligning strategies with a 1.5°C trajectory, because it makes business sense to do so.
The Climate Ambition Accelerator is a six-month accelerator programme for companies participating in the United Nations Global Compact who are looking to make progress towards setting science-based emissions targets and create a clear path to address their organization’s transition to net-zero.
Led by the United Nations Global Compact with support from Patrons Ørsted and Natura & Co, and sponsored by En+ Group, the Climate Ambition Accelerator aims to scale-up credible climate action across companies of all sizes, sectors, and regions, enabling them to deliver on meaningful commitments to reduce emissions at scale. The Climate Ambition Accelerator builds on the UN Global Compact’s work to develop and promote the Science Based Targets initiative, Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign, the UN Global Compact Action Platform on Climate Ambition, and will contribute to initiatives such as the Race to Zero campaign.
