With the Biden administration set to host world leaders this month for the Leaders’ Summit on Climate, the signal sent by American actions as a partner, leader, and advocate present an invaluable opportunity for greater global ambition. As U.S. leaders prepare to announce a bold NDC, the most aggressive targets can only be met through support and collaboration between government and the private sector. Achieving an ambitious 2030 target in line with the ultimate aim of net-zero emissions by 2050 requires an all-in effort by all sectors of the U.S. economy, and the cooperation and support of a wide range of stakeholders will be needed. Ahead of the April 22–23 summit, C2ES will host a discussion with leading U.S. companies with ambitious climate targets and an emissions modeling expert on how government and private sector collaboration can drive investments in climate solutions across the global economy to facilitate the net zero transition, accelerate economic growth, create jobs, and address equity issues.
