Over the next two decades fundamental transformation of the global economy is required for it to become compatible with globally agreed climate objectives and to accelerate sustainable development. 91% of the global economy (representing 88% of emissions and 80% of the population) is already committed to “net zero” presenting great opportunities for new products, solutions and services – particularly in low- and middle-income countries.
As well as reducing emissions it will become increasingly necessary to adapt to the changing climate and scale up sequestration to limit climate change. Driving the necessary transformations at speed and scale requires the right combination of innovative policy, technology, economics and governance. This is where the climate center comes in, supporting the identification, deployment and dissemination of scalable climate solutions to accelerate sustainable development.
