A Little Less Conversation, a Little More (Climate) Action
To limit impacts of climate change and keep global warming to 1.5°C, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions must be halved by 2030, for a pathway to net-zero by 2050. The UN Environment Programme concludes in its 2021 Emission Gap Report, that there is still a large ambition gap by 2030 and that we are not on track. For an orderly transition to a low-carbon economy, enormous investments are required. The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates, USD 150 trillion will be needed over the next decade.
