Data-Driven EnviroLab & NewClimate Institute (2020): Accelerating Net Zero: Exploring Cities, Regions, and Companies’ Pledges to Decarbonise

Data-Driven EnviroLab & NewClimate Institute (2020): Accelerating Net Zero: Exploring Cities, Regions, and Companies’ Pledges to Decarbonise. Research report prepared by the team of: Angel Hsu, Zhi Yi Yeo, Amy Weinfurter, Yin Xi Tan, Ian French, Vasu Namdeo, Odele Tan, Sowmya Raghavan, Elwin Lim, and Ajay Nair (Data-Driven EnviroLab) and Thomas Day, Silke Mooldijk, Niklas Höhne, and Takeshi Kuramochi (NewClimate Institute).

"This report explores where there have been huge uptakes in net-zero commitments in surprising sectors and geographies, quantifying the scale of net-zero commitments from cities, regions, and business actors. The findings show the growing momentum towards zero carbon, while revealing areas where there is the potential to scale up and accelerate crucial action in the coming decades."
