All In For Climate: How a Whole-of-Society Approach Can Accelerate the Race to Zero

In collaboration with the UNFCCC Race to Zero Campaign

April 21, 2021

8:00-9:30 AM EDT/13:00-14:30 BST

As the world enters the decisive decade where global emissions need to be halved while recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, countries can only achieve this collective goal if national governments work hand in hand with subnational governments, the private sector, academic institutions and civil society to meet the challenge.

Ahead of the Leader's Climate Summit on April 22-23, join Alliances for Climate Action and the UNFCCC Race to Zero Campaign for a conversation with leading subnational and non-state actors to discuss how a “whole-of-society” approach can address the climate crisis. Representatives from leading companies, local and state governments and other institutions from Argentina, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, South Africa and the United States will explore domestic opportunities to realize 1.5C aligned national targets through the decarbonization of the power, transport and land use sectors. Panelists will share the actions that their institutions are taking and discuss how subnational and non-state actor institutions can partner with each other and with national governments to accelerate the decarbonization of these critical sectors.

The event will highlight how domestic Alliances for Climate Action are championing a "whole-of-society" approach to address the climate crisis, contributing to building the groundswell of support for the global Race to Zero Campaign and the necessary Breakthroughs across the global economy spearheaded by the UNFCCC High-Level Champions for Climate Action.
