ONZ contributes to new global guidelines for clarity on net zero action at COP27 – Net Zero Climate


The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) today publishes the Net Zero Guidelines to support all actors and organisations to reach their net zero goals, with expert contribution from Oxford Net Zero.

The Net Zero Guidelines draw on the existing landscape of net zero standards and initiatives to harmonise net zero guidance. They will support all organisations looking to make or support a net zero claim, enabling them to take a consistent approach. The guidelines will also support organisations that develop policies, frameworks, standards or other initiatives on net zero for use by others.

Kaya Axelsson, ONZ engagement fellow, was a technical author of the guidelines.

Axelsson said: “It was one of the greatest honours to work as a technical author. We worked through 4,000 comments from scientists, industry, civil society and more. We’ve debated and discussed every single line of this document.”

Axelsson explains how inclusion was rooted both in process and outcome of the document: “We have a whole section on fair share thinking. We also talk about beyond value chain mitigation and the contribution of actors towards global net zero.”

The Net Zero Guidelines were developed through The ISO’s International Workshop Agreement (IWA) process. This involved a series of virtual workshops intended to produce final net zero guidelines, reflecting global perspectives.

The initiative was made possible through the Our 2050 World collaboration between ISO, the UN Race to Zero and the UNFCCC’s Global Innovation Hub, which has been convened by the UK’s National Standards Body, BSI.
