Scientists and economists agree—transitioning to a net-zero emissions economy by 2050 is what’s best for our planet and its people. To avoid the worst effects of climate change, we need companies, countries, cities and communities to act with maximum impact. We need to reach net-zero by 2050 at the latest. Future generations, communities and companies will not survive without action now.
These are exceptional times, and exceptional times calls for radical ambition. We’re facing a climate crisis that cannot be ignored by any sector. It’s time for all companies to step up and commit to transformative action now. We cannot achieve the transition to the net-zero economy without business.

Join the Net-Zero by 2050 Community
To meet the Paris Agreement’s goals, we need a just transition that goes beyond a low-carbon economy—and toward a net-zero economy by 2050. The B Team’s Net-Zero by 2050 Team seeks to drive business ambition and action around this vision and you can be a part of it.
We see no room for half measures, pointless debate or excuses for inaction. For the well-being of humanity, and for the future of business, we must reach net-zero emissions by 2050 whilst upholding the fundamental rights of the people who have contributed least to this crisis and who are most vulnerable to its impacts.”
