Late climate action is better than no action

There are some signs that the world is waking up to climate risks and the benefits of greater renewable capacity. In this webinar Felicity Hannon will present Oxford Economics’ new Slow and Constrained scenario in which policymakers accelerate climate action and implement more aggressive policies in 2030. This helps to close the commitment gap and net zero emissions are achieved by 2075. Our analysis shows that the inequitable long-run economic damages from inaction are so great that late climate action is better than no action.

Note: Please note that we will be holding one webinar each for APAC, EMEA, and Americas friendly time zones. Can’t make it to any of the sessions? Feel free to register for any session and we will automatically share the recording with you 3 hours after the webinar has finished.
