Energy Transition 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

1

Conscious consumers

Consumers want sustainable products and services and are willing to pay extra for them. Public and private sectors need to provide sustainable alternatives for everyday products, and educate consumers on their value.

2

Purpose-driven investment

Financial institutions are rethinking where their money is invested, focusing on companies with strong ESG fundamentals and strategies to leave fossil fuel behind.

Office for Zero Emission Vehicles: Using design to accelerate the adoption of zero-emission road transport

The UK government’s transport decarbonisation plan is a world-leading ‘greenprint’ for building a net zero transport system by 2050. We teamed up with the Royal College of Art to design the blueprint for an emblematic chargepoint as recognisable as Britain’s red post boxes or black cabs.
