Lord Adair Turner chairs the Energy Transitions Commission, a global coalition of major power and industrial companies, investors, environmental NGOs and experts working out achievable pathways to limit global warming to below 2˚C. He joins Alex in conversation to explore what needs to happen in the next 8 years, well ahead of any ultimate Net Zero deadline (eg/ 2050), to achieve the outcome we need.
Listen in and explore the momentum being seen right now, with more than 70% of global GDP covered by a net zero target, and the routes critical industries are taking to decarbonise. You’ll hear thoughts on the innovative mechanisms that global capital markets and policy are developing, and you’ll get his insights on the urgent need for huge amounts of zero carbon electricity and infrastructure to support essential solutions.
Lord Turner has a background spanning the corporate world, played a key part in tackling the financial crisis and was the original chairman of the Climate Change Committee: A great guest to drive energy and intention into our 2022 plans.
