Building an effective climate response
Because we only have one planet
To reverse the current climate crisis and lessen its effects on global hunger, conflict and resource scarcity, we need to limit global warming to a 1.5°C temperature increase by 2050.
To do this, we need to close the tap on 60 per cent of oil and gas reserves and leave 90 per cent of the coal in the ground.
Achieving our 1.5°C target will take ambitious planning and impactful action. We need to launch a coordinated climate response, and energy transition will play a significant role.
Five catalysts that will accelerate the energy transition
