The briefing introduces a new global stocktake of net zero commitments, exploring the pace of target setting and whether net zero targets are becoming more robust, a prerequisite for delivering the Paris Agreement’s climate targets. The Stocktake assesses the quality & quantity of net zero targets, across countries, sub-national governments, and large publicly-traded companies, providing the world’s broadest ‘living’ register of global net zero targets. This is the third annual stocktake from the NZT consortium, and will look at both the extent to which new targets are being set and indicators of their robustness.

The UN Global Stocktake will continue at Bonn, prior to its culmination at COP28, providing a baseline and lever for future action. The Net Zero Tracker’s Stocktake report will pre-emptively indicate if country commitments can drive a fundamental shift towards deep decarbonisation, as well as showing the extent of commitments by non-state entities.
