The race to zero: action by cities, business and investors

Net zero targets are proliferating across the world, covering not only countries but also business, investors, cities, states and provinces, universities, and many others.

Join Professor Thomas Hale, Blavatnik School of Government, Dr Aoife Haney, Saïd Business School & Dr Steve Smith, Net Zero Initiative, in the last of the Oxford net zero: climate in the balance series of discussions.
