2019 Statement

In July 2019 to mark its first anniversary, the Coalition launched the 2019 statement. The new pledge reflects the latest science that illustrates the need to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees and aligns with the Government’s ambitions in the Zero Carbon Bill. The new pledge shows the Coalition is ambitious about reducing emissions with the intention of educating its people, suppliers, customers and the wider public along the way. The Coalition hopes to transition new and existing signatories to this more ambitious pledge over time.
