2030 Climate Action

High-impact technologies and innovations

While COP26 resulted in an agreement to wind down the use of coal, global emissions have continued to rise. The harsh reality is that we need to get to a 50 per cent reduction of emissions in the next 10 years to meet the Paris Agreement’s 1.5Cº climate goals. This demands a huge shift in thinking and investment, and unprecedented collaboration to scale and implement systematic transition to a climate-smart global economy.

Innovative technologies are central to this. With most technologies, the prospects, impact and pace of progress are bound up with investment, as well as public sector involvement through government incentives. Right now first movers play a critical role, not just to create demand, but also to help scale the technologies with the biggest impact while growing their own businesses.
