Taking stock: A global assessment of net zero targets
Energy & Climate Intelligence Unit & Oxford Net Zero
released 23 March 2021
The first systematic analysis of significant emitters, looking at the robustness of net zero pledges as well as their scope. The report looks for evidence that entities have components of a credible plan in place, such as interim targets, a reporting mechanism and clarity on use of offsets; we do not assess whether such plans are internally coherent nor compatible with a global trajectory to the 1.5°C Paris Agreement target.12 This report is an ‘opening snapshot’ that will allow the anticipated strengthening of net zero targets to be tracked over time.
