Beyond Zero Emissions Inc. is a not-for-profit, volunteer run campaign organisation.

Their core goal is to facilitate the implementation of the social changes and technologies that will reduce the impacts of climate change and give our society and global ecosystems a chance of surviving into the future.

They are involved in the following activities:

  • education
  • advocacy
  • corporate campaigning
  • political campaigning
  • network building
  • community campaign building
  • research
  • solution development

BZE differ from some mainstream environmental groups by one very important point - they accept that we have already allowed climate change to go too far, and must act immediately to reduce our levels of greenhouse gas emissions to zero and below.

[edit] The Zero Emissions goal

Today's atmospheric levels of greenhouse gases are already resulting in a global climate disaster (over 300,000 dead per year, increasing storms, rising temperatures and sea levels, etc).

If we allow greenhouse gas levels to increase we will see more fires, more storms, more extinctions and more death as a result of global warming and a changing climate.

This leaves us with one simple choice: we must reduce our levels of atmospheric greenhouse emissions and we must do it now.

Beyond Zero Emissions was created to help achieve this goal.

[edit] How the BZE goal differs

The broader climate action movement, climate scientists and many large environment groups now agree with this zero goal. Some other major environment groups whose goals differ to Beyond Zero Emissions will see atmospheric greenhouse gases continue to rise and consequently cause more devastation from global warming. Our goal is to facilitate the implementation of the social changes and technologies that will reduce the impacts of climate change and give our society and global ecosystems a chance of surviving into the future.
