Dr @thomasnhale, @OxfordNetZero /NZT co-lead:
“The #HLEG report crystalizes a clear set of best practices on #netzero: cover all your emissions, set nr-term targets, publish your plan & update on progress, do not use offsets to delay/substitute for reduction, get there by 2050."

We'll be sharing these #netzero guidelines individually a lot over the coming months. Why?

Because tackling the *surplus of confusion and deficit of credibility* relies upon these becoming the lodestar 🌟 for thousands of global entities, even national governments.
