The COP26 summit is behind us, and although the agreements made by the 196 countries nudged the world closer to a net-zero pathway, there is still a mountain to climb. The Glasgow Climate Pact calls on governments to “Accelerate the development, deployment and dissemination of technologies, and the adoption of policies, to transition towards low-emission energy system”, including “accelerating efforts towards the phasedown of unabated coal power and phase-out of inefficient fossil fuel subsidies”. Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions need to fall by 45% compared with 2010 levels by 2030 if the world is to stay on track to reach net-zero by around mid-century. The current trajectory, however, is estimated to be 13.7% above the 2010 level in 2030. The challenge is stark.
This article will outline how to build robust and effective climate pathway strategies using (imperfect) ESG data, analytics, and create technology-generating active market returns in our collective race to Net-Zero. Quite simply, there is no time to wait.
