The Net Zero Tracker is a collaboration among four esteemed organizations—The Energy & Climate Intelligence Unit (ECIU), the Data-Driven EnviroLab (DDL), NewClimate Institute, and Oxford Net Zero. It is funded solely by philanthropic foundations such as the European Climate Foundation (ECF) and ClimateWorks Foundation. In essence, the Net Zero Tracker charts a course towards a more accountable, transparent, and ultimately sustainable future, underpinned by rigorous analysis, robust methodologies, and unwavering dedication to the cause.

The Net Zero Tracker provides freely accessible data under a Creative Commons BY 4.0 License. It compiles information on net zero emissions targets pledged by countries, regions, cities, and companies. Data is collected from publicly available sources, analyzed systematically by volunteer coders, and cross-checked for accuracy. While comprehensive, the dataset has limitations, including gaps in global coverage and reliance on publicly available information. To enhance accountability, the Tracker also signposts to prominent initiatives assessing climate targets. These include Climate Action Tracker, Net Zero Scorecard, Climate Change Laws of the World, LobbyMap, Corporate Climate Responsibility Monitor, and the UN Race to Zero campaign.
