ALLIANCE FOR CLIMATE ACTION

We are a network of committed organisations that are working together- with each other, and with our local and national government- to collectively achieve a net carbon neutral economy for South Africa by 2050.

Sign up to join this network of forward-thinking businesses, cities and others making bold climate commitments, developing ambitious climate action plans, and taking climate action individually and collectively to unlock opportunity for investment.

We are acting now to create a future that is low-carbon and climate-resilient, and inclusive for all who live in South Africa.

“While national governments are vital to the transition to low-carbon, it is through collective action and collaboration between companies, investors, cities, states and regions that we will reach the pace and scale needed to truly build a sustainable economy. Data and transparency are vital to this transition, with disclosure of environmental risk and impacts being the crucial first step for action. CDP holds the richest global dataset of self-reported environmental data from companies and cities around the world, and we are seeing unprecedented action. The transformation of the global economy is already underway. Now is the time to urgently accelerate this shift to meet the goals of the historic Paris Agreement.”

When businesses, cities, states, civil society and others collaborate to build a cleaner future faster, governments are given greater confidence to pass ambitious climate policies, which in turn increase low-carbon innovation and investment. These ‘ambition loops’ will create unstoppable momentum toward a zero emissions future.
