Net-zero 2050

A vision and evidence base for the transition to net-zero emission societies in Europe and beyond, by mid-century at the latest.

The Net-Zero 2050 is a new initiative of the European Climate Foundation with contributions from a consortium of experts and organisations funded by the ECF.

The Paris Agreement commits us to making this transition, and long-term strategic planning shows that many of the decisions and actions needed to get us on track must be taken imminently.

Reports in the series are intended to create a basis for discussion with stakeholders and policy-makers on Net-Zero decarbonisation. In particular, they seek to enhance understanding of the implications and opportunities of moving to climate neutrality across the economy; to shed light on some of the near-term choices and actions needed to reach this goal; and to provide thought leadership about the governance arrangements necessary to implement the Paris Agreement.
