UN Secretary-General António Guterres has called for a summit on climate ambition on September 20, 2023 in New York. The summit will aim to accelerate action on climate change and net zero goals.
The summit will bring together world leaders from government, business, finance, and civil society. It will provide a platform for leaders to make ambitious commitments to reduce emissions and build a more sustainable future.
The summit is being held at a critical time. The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warned that the world is on track for a catastrophic 2.7 degrees Celsius of warming by the end of the century. To avoid this, the world needs to reduce emissions by 45% by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050.
The UN summit on climate ambition is an opportunity for world leaders to come together and make the commitments necessary to avoid climate catastrophe. It is also an opportunity to showcase the progress that has already been made and to inspire others to take action.
