The science is telling us we have to act urgently to significantly reduce emissions to 45% by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2050 if we are to successfully adapt to climate change. In response, cities are stepping up their action; declaring climate emergencies and reinforcing these with net zero carbon commitments. But cities cannot achieve the emissions reductions alone, with some cities controlling just 4% of their cities’ carbon emissions. City-Business Climate Alliances have huge potential to reduce emissions on a greater scale than the city could manage alone.
This publication is designed for city governments who recognize that by working together with their local business community, they are better prepared to address the challenges of climate change.
