Gold Standard is hosting an event Beyond Net Zero: Credible, Ambitious Climate Strategies to be featured at both Climate Week NYCa and the Net Zero Festival in London.

Beyond Net Zero: Credible, Ambitious climate strategies

Net Zero commitments are soaring, but many are ‘greenwishing’, lacking concrete plans or involve postponing short term climate action. This event will focus on how companies can set ambitious climate strategies and highlight concrete solutions they can take today to reduce emissions within and beyond their corporate boundaries -- and the fuzzy space in between. We will discuss how to take action to address Scope 3 emissions and take a deep dive into the relationship between Scope 3 and carbon markets and how they can work together for more ambitious climate action. We’ll also look at how to navigate the complexity of emerging claims and practices to recognise climate leadership.
