48 Climate Vulnerable Forum countries commit to 100% renewables at COP22

The 48 developing country members of the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) demonstrated much needed ambition and leadership at COP22. They agreed to making their energy production 100% renewable “as rapidly as possible”, and by between 2030 and 2050 at the latest. This commitment is set out in the CVF’s leadership vision statement for 2016-2018, called […]

Track 0 Goals

Our economic system is at odds with our climate system and our fragmented individual efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have amounted to an increase in GHGs so far. The science says to avoid a maximum 2ºC/1.5ºC temperature rise GHG emissions need to be phased out completely as soon as possible. Phasing out emissions to zero is feasible and supported by the science. Track 0 is here to support all those who want to pursue pathways to net zero GHG emissions, pointing the way to a clean, fair and bright future for all.

GUIDED BY THE SCIENCE

Our goal is to limit global temperature rise to well below 2ºC/1.5ºC. This means reaching net zero GHG emissions by 2050 in accordance with science and as set out in the Paris Agreement.

PHASE OUT C02 EMISSIONS FIRST

We prioritise immediate phase out of CO2 emissions from energy and industry as fast as possible starting today.

Phase in 100% clean energy

We work to support all those working for goal of 100% clean renewable energy as part of the energy transition to a clean future.

Ambition for every sector

Gases such as methane, HFCs and emissions of particulates also contribute to climate change. We therefore want leaders from all sectors to commit to renewable energy and a phase out of either emission as a way to unify all efforts.

Social Justice

We want a socially just world with zero poverty and enhanced resilience to climate impacts. Reaching net zero emissions must go hand in hand with equity and fairness to present and future generations, including impacts that cause irreversible loss and damage.

Economically Sustainability

Investing in low carbon opportunities is financially attractive, creates secure local jobs and places our economy on a sustainable track for the long run.
