The 12.12. Ambition Summit marks the 5 year anniversary of the Paris Agreement, and is an important opportunity to facilitate an uplift of ambition from national governments on their emissions reduction commitments.
Non-party stakeholders can use the momentum from the Race to Zero - and the doubling of net zero commitments in 2020 to showcase continued climate ambition, calling on governments to increase their climate targets. .
The anniversary of the Paris Agreement is a moment to demonstrate, holistically, how entire country systems (involving public-private collaborations) can continue striving for climate action commensurate with the 1.5ºC goal. It is an opportunity for renewed political and diplomatic focus on tacking climate change and building ambition in the run up to COP26 in November 2021.
