UNICA members join Race to Zero campaign for zero carbon recovery
30 April 2021 | Other
More than 600 Higher Institutions around the globe, including six UNICA members, have joined Race to Zero, a global campaign to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions, investors for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs, and unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth.
Led by the High-Level Climate Champions for Climate Action – Nigel Topping and Gonzalo Muñoz– it mobilizes a coalition of leading net zero initiatives, representing cities, regions, businesses, the biggest investors, and universities and colleges. The objective is to build momentum around the shift to a decarbonized economy ahead of COP26, where governments must strengthen their contributions to the Paris Agreement. This will send governments a resounding signal that business, cities, regions, investors and universities and colleges are united in meeting the Paris goals and creating a more inclusive and resilient economy.
UNICA universities that joined this initiative include:
- University of Helsinki, Finland
- Università di Roma Tor Vergata, Italy
- Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain
- Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain
- Stockholm University, Sweden
- King’s College London, United Kingdom
