Countdown to Net Zero: what’s the plan for the next 12 months?

“We have to start immediately to change the mindset of everyone.” That was Philippe Vié at our Accelerating Net Zero summit. But how? And then what? What are the practical steps needed from politicians, business leaders and consumers, right now, to make sure the world is on a glide-slope to net zero rather than catastrophic overshoot? Can this be done with an orderly sequence of laws and multi trillion-dollar investments, as President Biden seems to think? If so, what comes first – new tech, new incentives, a global carbon price? Or do we have to start with a revolution in the streets and in the way we live?

This ThinkIn is part of Tortoise’s Accelerating Net Zero coalition. The initiative brings together our members and a network of organisations across a programme of ThinkIns and journalism devoted to accelerating progress towards Net Zero.
