A campaign was launched by CDP and the We Mean Business Coalition for companies to invite G20 Leaders to go all in to keep the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C goal.

As a key part of delivering success at COP26, the We Mean Business Coalition is urging all companies that have a presence in at least one of the G20 geographies to support an open letter calling on G20 governments to strengthen their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

The letter calls for,

• at least halving global emissions by 2030, and committing to achieve net-zero emissions by no later than 2050,

• committing to ending new coal power development and financing immediately, and developing plans to phase out coal-fired power generation by 2030 for advanced economies, and 2040 for other countries,

• aligning public finance, COVID-19 recovery spending and fiscal policies with a 1.5°C trajectory, while ensuring adequate support for adaptation and resilience measures.

The deadline for signing the letter is 06:59, Turkey time, Thursday, 9 September 2021. The letter is scheduled to be launched around Climate Week NYC in September.

You can fill out this form to be included in the campaign.
