Net zero drafting checklist

A part of the net zero implementation kit, the net zero drafting checklist merits its place as a standalone tool as well. The checklist provides you with a framework to use when drafting or negotiating net zero concepts in contracts.

The checklist cross references the Race to Zero criteria of starting line (pledge, plan, proceed, publish) and leadership practices (scope, sinks and credits and empowerment and equity). It is aligned with the seven rows of our net zero dashboard and shows the key elements of an ambitious net zero target.

This dashboard charts the composite elements of net zero targets (scope, warming, timing, offsetting, governance, just transition, climate policy engagement) across levels of increasing ambition.

It is designed to provide you with a single and accessible tool through which you can assess your progress on aligning your drafting with net zero.
