Description

Description Climate Neutral Now is an initiative launched by UN Climate Change in 2015, aiming at encouraging all stakeholders in society to take climate action to achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century, as enshrined in the Paris Agreement adopted the same year.
Objectives Climate Neutral Now aims to contribute to limiting the raise of the temperature by proposing an immediate set of actions: measure, reduce and offset with trustworthy units, recognized under the United Nations. Committing to taking these three steps incentivizes behavioral changes within companies, organizations, individuals, i.e. consumers, whom in turn will drive the change within their industries and networks.
Activities Climate Neutral Now invites companies, organizations, governments and citizens to work towards climate neutrality by reducing their climate footprint through a 3-steps method, whereby they:

Measure (estimate) their greenhouse gas emissions; Reduce them as much as possible; and Compensate those which cannot currently be avoided by using UNFCCC-recognized offsets, totally or partially.

One or two success stories achieved - The United Nations System, under leadership of the UN Environment Programme and the UNFCCC secretariat, committed to achieving a climate neutral status by 2020. As of 2018, 85% of emissions have been reduced and compensated.

- The Airport Council International through its Airport Carbon Accreditation program, in collaboration with Climate Neutral Now, added climate neutrality to its program and 61 airports globally have achieved this level.

- Events such as the UNFCCC sessions, FIFA World Cup 2018, Matoma musical tour, IPCC meetings, World Resources Forum and others have been made neutral in collaboration with Climate Neutral Now.
