- Climate Neutral Now was launched by UN Climate Change in 2015, encouraging all stakeholders in society to implement action to achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century, as enshrined in the Paris Agreement adopted the same year.
- Climate Neutral Now proposes an immediate set of actions: measure, reduce and offset with trustworthy carbon credits, including those recognized under the United Nations Climate Change Convention.
- Committing to taking these three steps incentivizes behavioral changes within companies, organizations, individuals, i.e. consumers, whom in turn will drive the change within their industries and networks.
