On the way to San Francisco with Net Zero Initiative !

11 September 2018

Carbone 4 invites you to the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco from September 12 -14th. We will be celebrating the launch of our NET ZERO INITIATIVE, in partnership with 9 French companies, ENGIE, RATP, EDF, L’OREAL, ORANGE, BPCE, UNIMA, REMADE and HAVAS PARIS.

Net Zero Initiative is a unique network of companies working towards the ambitious goal of carbon neutrality. Its first objective is to establish a unique point of reference for organizations working toward carbon neutrality.

On this occasion, we are organizing a conference / debate “Make Zero Happen: step up to a credible carbon neutrality” on Thursday, September 13th from 5:30 pm on the theme “Make Zero Happen: step up to a credible carbon neutrality”. Pioneering companies (Orange, ENGIE) and key players in climate action (Science Based Targets and The Gold Standard) are invited to exchange and debate around what really embodies the climate commitment of a company, company, or a city: the net zero goal.

About the Net Zero Initiative

The first mission of the Net Zero Initiative, collective 100% Paris Agreement, is the development of a Method for organizations that wish to achieve a carbon neutral demanding, credible, and harmonized. A future common repository that wants to be:

  • challenging, because finally prioritizing the reduction of emissions at the source
  • rigorous, because validated by a scientific council composed of 12 experts
  • credible, because co-built by companies from various sectors.

Explicitly mentioned in the Paris Climate Agreement as a goal to be achieved by the end of the century, carbon neutrality is a balance between greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sinks removals. The more we wait to reduce global net emissions to zero, the greater the probability of experiencing destructive phenomena such as the deadly heat waves this summer in Japan, or the unusual fires in Sweden, Greece and California.

With the Net Zero objective, the company has the opportunity to materialize its commitment to the climate, to make a positive and mobilizing number from scratch, to stimulate its inventiveness, because it forces us to no longer conceive the fight against climate change in the form of limits not to be exceeded but as a goal to be achieved collectively. The first results of this work will be shared during the COP24. #MakeZeroHappen
