PARTNERS WITH TED ON THE ‘CLIMATE COUNTDOWN INITIATIVE’
2020 will be remembered as the year of the Novel Corona Virus. It redefined how we live and function
as a society. Although, this has temporarily reduced the amount of greenhouse gases, climatic effects
of the greenhouse gas emissions still persist. Our planet is still warming and the oceans still acidifying.
It is yet another grave reminder that we are sitting on a ticking time bomb called climate change. Jio
has joined hands with TED to address climate change with their ‘Countdown’ initiative.
ABOUT TED CLIMATE COUNTDOWN INITIATIVE:
• TED Climate Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the
climate crisis for turning ideas into action.
• The goal is to build a better future by cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 in the
race to a zero-carbon world – a world that is safer, cleaner and fairer for everyone.
• It is a movement open to everyone as each one of us has a vital role to play. Every organization,
company, city and country is invited to collaborate with Countdown and take action on the
threat posed by climate change.
• Countdown seeks to answer five fundamental, interconnected questions that help form a
blueprint for a cleaner future.
