Who has committed to net zero goals?

November 9, 2021 - As the COP26 climate summit continues, a growing number of countries, cities and businesses are making pledges to get to net-zero emissions. COP26 aims to keep alive the target of capping global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

In total, 137 countries have committed to net zero, carbon neutrality or being climate-neutral, according to the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit.

India is one of the latest countries to pledge net zero, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi announcing at COP26 an aim to reach that goal by 2070.
