Making Net Zero achievable with key steps in the 2020s

Lord Adair joins Alex to explore what needs to happen in the next 8 years, well ahead of any ultimate Net Zero deadline (e.g 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. He also joined us at the Decarb Connect Festival 2022 in January.

Decarb Connect supports the acceleration of industrial decarbonisation around the globe. We share insights and facilitate collaborations across the emerging decarbonisation ecosystem. We look specifically at the most energy-intensive industrials from cement, metals and mining, glass, ceramics, chemicals, O&G and many more and help connect them to technology disruptors, investors and advisors.

Through the Decarbonisation Leaders Network (DLN), our members (a cross-sector network of those leading decarbonisation in energy-intensive industries) share insights and experiences as they accelerate their Net Zero plans. Check out Decarb Connect’s offerings and learn about the Decarbonisation Leaders Network members, meetups and benefits.
