The 2030 Imperative: A Race Against Time

Can we get on course, by 2030, to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees and meet the Paris Agreement?

In this white paper, we take a look at a possible decarbonization pathway to 2030, consistent with a global warming target of 1.5-degree by end of century. We find that there is still a chance to remain within this trajectory, though the challenge is daunting. It requires a nearly 3-fold acceleration from current pledges and will mainly revolve around a greater focus on demand-side decarbonization.

To achieve sustainability goals set out by hundreds of global organizations, bold steps are required to reduce emissions and operate more sustainably.

It is time to embrace sustainability as a business imperative, and to capture the momentum now, for the future.
