CORPORATE CLIMATE TARGET SETTING, ACTION AND GLOBAL COLLABORATION TOWARDS A NET-ZERO FUTURE - ACCELERATE 2030 AGENDA FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT THROUGH GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE
The world is calling for immediate and collective action towards a universal climate goal, outlined in the Paris Agreement. Working with top talents from around the world, the United Nations is taking urgent actions to standardize guidelines for achieving Net-Zero, creating a platform of global collaboration. China takes the lead in fostering a conducive environment for global collaboration through proposing the Global Development Initiative (GDI), with a series of initiatives surrounding eight key areas including climate actions. A just transition to a Net-Zero future requires bold actions from all parties, and corporates are an indispensable force. The key to success is knowing “where to go” — setting climate targets, and “how to get there” — implementing Net-Zero initiatives.
