Today, IGCN launched the Climate Ambition Accelerator, a six-month programme designed to equip participating UN Global Compact companies with the knowledge and skills they need to accelerate progress toward achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
With investors and clients increasingly calling for companies to reduce emissions and set ambitious targets, the Climate Ambition Accelerator programme addresses a critical knowledge gap and enables companies of all sizes, sectors, and regions to deliver on meaningful commitments to reduce emissions at scale.
“This is a make-or-break year to confront the climate emergency. Meaningful actions taken by businesses collectively now have the power to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius,” says Sanda Ojiambo, CEO & Executive Director of the UN Global Compact. “Our Climate Ambition Accelerator enables more companies in our Local Networks to join the transition to a net-zero future and get started in setting ambitious, credible science-based targets.”
Through the Global Compact Local Networks around the world, participating companies will gain access to global best practices, peer-to-peer learning opportunities, capacity-building sessions, and On-Demand training.
Now in its second year, registration for the programme is open to participating companies of the UN Global Compact and runs through 30 April 2022.
If your company is ready to accelerate progress toward achieving net-zero, contact us to apply now.
