Exponential Climate Action Summit

Race to Zero through digitalization. Watch now!

To beat climate change, we need decisive and exponential action. In the Exponential Climate Action Summits, we bring together the foremost thinkers and doers in climate action to discuss what innovations and policies exist that can bring the change required in order to halve emissions by 2030 in the Race To Zero.

We have explored how digitalization can enable sufficient action in businesses and governments. We have also discussed the solutions that digitalization brings in the sectors of energy, transport and industry, along with the frontrunners of each sector.

We need exponential climate action to halve emissions by 2030 and we have the solutions – but We Don't Have Time to wait. Join us in the Race to Zero!

The ​Exponential Roadmap Initiative​ brings together technology innovators, scientists, companies and NGOs, with the mission to accelerate climate action exponentially. The Exponential Roadmap highlights 36 solutions that can scale exponentially to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 worldwide. It shows how we can build a stronger, more resilient and future-proof global economy and increase human prosperity and health - within the planetary boundaries.

All companies and organisations must halve emissions by 2030 in the Race To Zero. Get started now. The 1.5°C Business Playbook shows you how. It guides companies and organisations of all sizes to exponential climate action, helping them set a 1.5°C aligned strategy and move to action. Focusing on simplicity and speed, it is anchored in the latest science.

Climate Week NYC is an annual event that has taken place every year in New York City since 2009. The summit takes place alongside the UN General Assembly and brings together international leaders from business, government and civil society to showcase global climate action.

This year's Climate Week NYC is one of the few international climate summits taking place in 2020. As the focus shifts to how we rebuild after COVID-19, Climate Week NYC 2020 will explore what lessons we can learn in the pursuit of a net-zero future through just transition. Climate Week NYC is hosted in association with the United Nations and the City of New York.

Race To Zero is a global campaign to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions, investors for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs, and unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth. It mobilizes a coalition of leading net zero initiatives, representing 449 cities, 21 regions, 995 businesses, 38 of the biggest investors, and 505 universities.

These ‘real economy’ actors join 120 countries in the largest ever alliance committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 at the latest. Collectively these actors now cover nearly 25% global CO2 emissions and over 50% GDP.
