INFORMATION

Zero Summit is where leaders meet to discuss a future with zero carbon.

VISION: Our vision is that only innovation and information can lead humanity to a better and more sustainable future.

MISSION: Zero Summit`s mission is to gather world leaders to impact the most individuals, companies and governmentswith a positive legacy.

We believe in an economy that can coexist with the enviroment and be good to the humans.

According to the IPCC, which sets out the scientific consensus on climate change, CO2 emissions must be halved between now and 2030 to have a strong chance of keeping global temperature rise below 1.5ºC eventually reaching net zero carbon by mid-century or earlier.
Every year of delay reduces the likelihood we can stave off the worst effects of climate change on humankind and our planet. Zero Summit is tackling this challenge head-on. By uniting on a journey to transform the operations of companies and governments, signatories to Zero Summit can have a cumulatively outsized impact.
