Race to Zero
The Race to Zero Dialogues were virtual events that aimed to achieve a world with net zero emissions by 2050. Convened by the High-Level Champions for Global Climate Action, they took place from 9 to 19 November 2020. ITF Secretary-General Young Tae Kim joined high-level transport action leaders to kick-off the Transport Day on Wednesday, 11 November, of which ITF is a lead organiser.
The Dialogues helped actors, partners, and the general public to better understand the ambitions of non-Party stakeholders and brought together the diverse range of activities that were already creating impact.
The Dialogues demonstrated non-Party stakeholders’ willingness to support more ambitious NDCs and Long-term Strategies to deliver Paris Agreement objectives as soon as possible. The Dialogues also served as a launchpad for action ahead of celebrating the Paris Anniversary in December 2020, and followed-up on outcomes from the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit convened by the UN Secretary-General.
