ZERO'S VISION

To advance a zero-carbon, sustainable future for all African people.

ZERO'S MISSION

Zero is the coalition campaign which aims to influence the African Development Bank (AfDB) to:

  • Commit to 100% renewable energy in the Bank’s power lending portfolios
  • Commit to 100% transparency in terms of:
    • Disclosure and Access to Information
    • Energy Efficiency Strategies
    • Operational Management and Carbon Pricing
    • Greenhouse Gas Emissions Accounting at the project and portfolio level

Africa's future

Zero Emissions | Omissions is a campaign led by a coalition of NGOs, CSOs, and volunteers from across the continent of Africa. We are calling on the African Development Bank (AfDB) to be 100% transparent, and to switch to 100% renewable energy in the Bank’s power lending portfolios.

All African countries have endorsed the Paris Climate Agreement and the goal to limit global temperature increase to 1.5ºC above pre-industrial levels. In accordance with international reports, most notable the recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), African countries are among the most vulnerable countries to climate change.

The time to take climate action for Africa is now – join us and add your voice to this movement.
