Companies make net-zero, climate neutral, and climate positive claims, but how credible are they? Are they based on science?

A major gap in the carbon conversation today is a framework that defines what it is to be "net zero" or "climate positive", anchored in the Science-Based Targets Initiative, the GHG Protocol, and market standards. What is also lacking is sector-specific guidance on how to get there.

Public and private sector actors together with civil society must together develop such a framework for it to be widely endorsed and used.

During this online event, South Pole invites you to learn more about the Framework for a Net-Zero Emissions Economy, how it has evolved, and how this will change the carbon business as we know it. We examine the latest in the net-zero debate, seek to clarify definitions, highlight action already taken, and discuss the vision for scaling up. We will be joined by experts from Gold Standard as part of a consortium with the Science Based Targets partners leading development of this framework.

In preparation for our May 6th webinar with Gold Standard on the concepts of Net Zero and Climate Positivity, check out our blog post for a brief overview of what to expect and the key building blocks behind it all.
