Net Zero Network

NET ZERO NETWORK is a new initiative for companies with net zero ambitions to share their needs, ideas and solutions – working together to help all Swedish companies in China become carbon neutral.

Background: The transformation to a net zero carbon economy is achievable and has already begun. Through the 2015 Paris Agreement, world governments committed to limiting global temperature well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C. In 2020, China announced their targets to peak carbon emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by
2060.

Purpose: The initiative for Net Zero Network aims to gather Swedish companies and climate change believers with net zero ambitions to share their needs, experience, ideas, and solutions on this topic. By working jointly, we can mobilize Swedish companies to take the lead on urgent climate action and sustainability in China and Globally.

Mission: Make Sweden the first ‘Net Zero Nation’ in China by helping all Swedish companies to become carbon neutral.
