The Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business is working closely with corporate, government, nonprofit, and academic partners to create the Drawdown Georgia Compact, a state-wide business consortium aimed at achieving a just, prosperous, and sustainable transition towards net-zero carbon emissions in the state of Georgia by 2050. The Compact launches a collective impact initiative to position Georgia as a leader among states in addressing the urgent climate challenge, and the opportunities it presents, through a path to a decarbonized, competitive economy.

The Compact builds on research from a multi-university collaboration, funded by the Ray C. Anderson Foundation, that launched Drawdown Georgia as a movement in the state.
