All must commit to achieving net zero CO2 emissions by 2050, in line with the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

New Alliance members will be announced at COP25
The high-level climate champion letter for Chile complements messages issued last week by THE designated President of COP25, Minister Carolina Schmidt, who similarly invited stakeholders and non-Parties to join the Alliance.
The new members will be announced on Wednesday, December 11 at COP25, as part of a special day of action convened by the Government of Chile.
The intention is to significantly grow the Alliance in the COP25 of Chile in Madrid. This will set the stage for next year’s COP26 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow. Where governments must submit improved national climate plans.
