What is the Cities Race to Zero?

The Race to Zero is a global campaign - led by the UN High-Level Climate Champions for Climate Action - to rally leadership and support from business, cities, regions, and investors for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs, and unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth ahead of COP26 in November.


The Cities Race to Zero is the city-specific track of Race to Zero, with the goal of recruiting over 1,000 cities to join the umbrella Race to Zero Campaign. The objective is to build global momentum around the shift to a decarbonized economy ahead of COP26. Cities Race to Zero is organized by C40 Cities, the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy (GCoM), ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI), United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), CDP, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and the World Resources Institute (WRI).

What is the Florida Cities Race to Zero?

The Florida Race to Zero is a friendly competition between Florida’s mayors designed to showcase how their cities are leading the way to climate neutrality through the Cities Race to Zero pledge.

The mayors across Florida have all made ambitious pledges to make their cities carbon neutral. The mission of this coalition is to serve as a platform to amplify their work, collaborate with one another and encourage other mayors and cities to “join the race” and make similar pledges.
