Nature

No net zero without nature

Preserving nature is a key element in the world’s effort both to mitigate and adapt to climate change, and it also happens to be good for business. But new findings show that much of the private sector continues to lag far behind in tackling deforestation and protecting biodiversity.

الممرات الخضراء: لماذا هي مفتاح للسباق نحو الصفر في صناعة الشحن

شهد العام الماضي مسار تغير الشحن في ظل تغير المناخ – على الأقل عندما يتعلق الأمر بالوجهة النهائية. في أكتوبر ، قدمت أكثر من ٢٠٠ منظمة نداء للعمل من أجل إزالة الكربون عن الشحن، معترفة بأن الصناعة والحكومات يجب أن تخفض انبعاثات القطاع إلى الصفر بحلول عام ٢٠٥٠. في اجتماع لجنة حماية البيئة البحرية التابعة […]

Here’s how we go beyond net zero and actually achieve drawdown

Natural climate solutions are the key for the Race to Zero and the Race to Resilience. They can take us beyond net zero, to actually achieve drawdown. With all of the cascading benefits to people and the planet, it is clear that climate finance should support nature-based climate solutions, says Mamta Mehra, Senior Fellow, Land Use & Research Program Officer & Chad Frischmann, Senior Director, Drawdown Solutions, Project Drawdown

Energy

COP26 must consign coal power to history

2030 Breakthroughs

Power sector announces clean energy breakthrough

The road to a fully decarbonized electricity system is clear. We must rapidly phase out fossil fuels whilst simultaneously accelerating our expansion of renewables. The transition to clean power is the crucial foundation of the energy transition, and achievement of the Race to Zero breakthrough ambition is a key step forward in achieving our sector goal of net zero.

How big data can help the shipping industry get to net zero

It’s time for shipping to step out of the shadows, to be forthright and act boldly, taking the initiative on carbon before the industry is forced to take action. Waiting for regulation to emerge from an agency and effectively drive change is not the right answer, argues Ami Daniel Co-Founder and CEO, Windward & Lord John Browne, Chairman, BeyondNetZero, and Chairman, Windward.

Economy

The real economy is not a side event in the global Race to Zero

The heavy industry and long-distance transport sectors hold the key to avoiding the worst impacts of climate change. Show that we can decarbonize these, and we can decarbonize the whole global economy, argue Faustine Delasalle, Co-Executive Director, Mission Possible Partnership & Anthony Robert Hobley Co-Executive Director, Mission Possible Partnership.
