Integrity Matters: Net Zero Commitments by Businesses, Financial Institutions, Cities and Regions

United Nations’ High‑Level Expert Group on the Net Zero Emissions Commitments of Non-State Entities

The "Integrity Matters" Report offers a roadmap to prevent net zero from being undermined by false claims, ambiguity, and “greenwashing”. Building on existing science and best-in-class voluntary efforts, the report creates a universal definition of net zero--based on five principles and ten recommendations to guide the future of net zero--and suggests the actions that need to be taken by cities, states, corporations and those who regulate them.
