Global GreenTag Africa Joins Alliance for Climate Action!

The Alliance for Climate Action believes in a shift to a low carbon economy, calling on companies, cities and others to work together to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emission in South Africa by 2050. Global GreenTag Africa has become a member of the Alliance and looking forward to contributing more to the movement in 2022 and beyond!

Members of the Alliance for Climate Action are committed to produce plans that show how they will achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, individually and through partnerships.

The group aims to use its influence to advocate for policies that support an economy-wide transition to #ZeroCarbon2050, including encouraging the national government of South Africa to increase its climate ambition, reaching net-zero emission by 2050.

Lizette Swanevelder, Director of Global GreenTag Africa said: "We really admire the work of the Alliance. Their activities are critical and vital, providing a glimpse into a better future and steps to help reverse the threats of climate change."

Following the Paris Agreement, the South African Government under the Ministry of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment is committed to keep national greenhouse gas emissions within a range from 389 Mt CO2-eq for 2025 and 2050.

According to Alliances for Climate Action South Africa, South Africa is extremely vulnerable to the physical impacts of climate change and to financial and social risks posed by the transition to a low carbon economy, should this transition not be carefully implemented.

Committing to a net zero carbon economy by 2050 is critical to prevent the catastrophic decline of the natural systems that support life.
