Excerpts (Eco-Related Items):
At the request of Mayor Paula Devine, Sustainability Manager David Jones offered a presentation regarding the RACE TO ZERO campaign, including, what the program’s goals are and what commitments would be required to become a participating city. At Mayor Devine’s further request, this item will be taken to the Sustainability Commission to consider the city’s participation.
“Race To Zero is a global campaign to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions, investors for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs, and unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth.
It mobilizes a coalition of leading net zero initiatives, representing 509 cities, 23 regions, 2,162 businesses, 127 of the biggest investors, and 571 Higher Education Institutions. These ‘real economy’ actors join 120 countries in the largest ever alliance committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 at the latest. Collectively these actors now cover nearly 25% global CO2 emissions and over 50% GDP.”
