Carbon Market Watch response to the UN High-level expert group on net zero

Carbon Market Watch welcomes the opportunity to input to the HLEG’s call for public submissions on net-zero commitments of non-State entities.

There is currently a proliferation of net-zero claims, as well as other similarly vague claims such as carbon neutral, carbon negative, climate positive, climate neutral, net carbon zero, and so on. Neither policymakers nor shareholders, let alone the general public, are well equipped to understand these announcements and distinguish real action from greenwashing. The HLEG’s work is therefore highly welcome.
