Climate Pledge

Carbon Path is a global registry for new and existing climate commitments

Carbon Path provides an online registry where each entity that makes a climate commitment can join the carbon reduction community marketplace.

Those that make the strongest pledge, show the greatest verified progress, or decarbonize first, are celebrated as leaders by the community and move up in the rankings.

Over recent months a wave of commitments have established a new climate pledge landscape:

  • 2020 – Bosch has announced that it will be the first multi-national to be carbon neutral, in 2020!
  • 2025 – Apple and their 23 largest suppliers appear positioned to achieve 100% Clean Energy before 2025
  • 2030 – The Green New Deal goal is 100% clean energy by 2030
  • 2035 – Finland recently committed to carbon neutral by 2035
  • 2040 – New York set a target to be carbon neutral by 2040
  • 2045 – Seven states, and over 100 cities, have committed to 100% clean energy by 2045
  • 2050 – The UK has pledged to decarbonize by 2050

On Carbon Path, governments, companies, NGOs, and individual people, can each publicly register their own climate commitment goals in the form of a climate pledge.

The Green New Deal goal is 100% clean energy by 2030. Any organization that can't move that quickly can sign a less ambitious pledge, and make a stronger commitment when they are ready.

Choose a goal:
  • Carbon Neutral = net zero emissions
  • 100% Clean Energy = zero fossil emissions
  • Carbon Negative = removing net carbon to begin drawdown
Choose a target date:

2020 | 2025 | 2030 | 2035 | 2040 | 2045 | 2050

Each climate pledge registered on Carbon Path includes a specific goal by a specific date, and can also include a link to a URL containing the exact language published by that entity.

An aspirational goal can be incredibly powerful – we went to the moon in less than 10 years. Once we commit to a goal, we create the social and market forces to achieve it together. The science now tells us that to stay below 1.5°C of total temperature rise, the rich countries need to end our fossil carbon emissions by 2030.
