To avert the
worst impacts of climate change, from extreme flooding to devastating droughts, the world will need to cap global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius, according to
the latest United Nations IPCC Report on the Earth’s climate system.
Achieving that goal means that by around 2050, the planet’s total greenhouse
gas emissions will need to decline to net zero. To that end, more and more
governments and businesses are setting net-zero emissions targets.
a net-zero world is one of the greatest challenges humanity has faced. It calls
for nothing less than a complete transformation of how we produce, consume, and
move about. The energy sector is the source of around three-quarters
of greenhouse gas emissions today and holds the key to averting the worst
effects of climate change. Replacing polluting coal, gas and oil-fired power
with energy from renewable sources, such as wind or solar, would dramatically
reduce carbon emissions.
The role of the
CSO is evolving as organizations have a long way to go before sustainability is
fully embedded into every function, process, and person. Net Zero Professional will deliver the latest technology,
processes and thought leadership to guide CSOs and other executives and
managers charged with delivering the net-zero promise.
