TAKE CLIMATE ACTION
The alliance asks government, business, and civil society stakeholders to sign a leadership statement committing to a zero carbon by 2050 future. Signing the leadership statement commits stakeholders to
- Work with others to develop a net zero carbon economy by 2050
- Advocate for others to do the same
- Use their influence to enhance planning by government
It is not be enough to ask stakeholders to make a commitment if we are to realise our goal of a carbon neutral, climate resilient, thriving and inclusive economy for South Africa by 2050.
The Alliance also requests signatories to develop their own long-term plans for how their organisations will achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and contribute to the national effort.
In addition, the ACA- SA provides avenues for organisations to engage with each other to implement initiatives that lead us towards a zero carbon 2050. Each partner has individual programmes that do this and the alliance will also forge new programmes within the partnership. The initial focus is on working with cities who have committed to a carbon neutral 2050 to help them develop and implement their plans in collaboration with business and to facilitate business to business collaboration at sector level.
