ABOUT

The climate decade: How do we build a zero carbon and climate-ready world?

The science is clear. We have a limited amount of time to act if we want to avoid the worst consequences of a rapidly warming world. Recently, JP Morgan warned of further economic meltdown, unless we act quickly to address climate change.

Yet, transforming our economy at the pace and on the scale called for is a herculean task — requiring business, NGOs, and governments to work together in ways they haven’t before.

In many ways the COVID-19 crisis offers an opportunity to re-examine how we live our lives and operate differently on a daily basis. What are the lessons we can take away from the pandemic as we build a zero carbon and climate-ready world?
