Shifting the global economy onto renewable sources of energy is the key to combatting climate change, while improving quality of life. To do this, national energy systems must transition first, and fast.
We have known for some time that the world is losing the fight to achieve net zero and prevent catastrophic effects of climate change. Even with a significant drop in global carbon emissions in the next two decades, the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts that it is unlikely that we can limit global warming to 1.5°C.
Our latest research Supercharging Net Zero simulates the urgent action required in order to bend the curve back towards a 1.5 degree world. It also highlights the substantial commercial opportunities for private sector investors and energy companies that are committed to driving progress. It also underscores the public sector support required to catalyze these efforts.
The urgency with which we need to transform our energy system is coupled with the potential to create significant financial advantages not just for businesses, but for people everywhere.
