Zero Emissions Day On September 21

 

CLC’s purpose is to help its members to develop and innovate more climate friendly products and services and so to increase their positive carbon handprint. In Zero Emissions Day, on 21st of September, we are going to highlight these solutions. Therefore we hope that you will share information on your products and services that can help citizens and organizations reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. In addition we would like to hear if you are going to organise your ownevents for your stakeholders during the Zero Emissions Day.

Everyday choices made by ordinary people hold the key to our efforts to reduce emissions and find more sustainable solutions. Recently published IPCC Working Group III report“Climate Change 2022: Mitigation of climate change” highlights that:

    • We need immediate and deep emission reductions across all sectors for limiting the global warming to 1.5°C
    • Demand-side measures (changes in infrastructure use, end-use technology adoption, and socio-cultural and behavioural change) and new ways of end-useservice provision can reduce global GHG emissions inend-use sectors by 40-70% by 2050

Zero Emissions Day started in Nova Scotia, Canada, 2008. CLC began organising the event in Finland in 2017Zero Emissions Day has been designed to give the world a break from fossil fuels and to raise awareness about the harm caused by carbon emissionsThe goal is to engage people towards more climate-friendly choices in their personal life. 

In 2022, CLC’s member organisations participated in the Zero Emissions Day following ways: 

  1. By introducing their climate friendly products, services and concepts. Please fill-in this form.
  2. By organising activities and events to their stakeholders like previous years (2018, 2019, 2020, 2021)
