What if the move to net-zero is disorderly?
Current climate action pledges won’t contain global warming to well below 2°C in line with the Paris Agreement. If decisive action is delayed further, a disorderly scenario will likely unfold and require stronger policy action to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
Our modelling suggests that an aggressive global carbon tax policy and limited renewable energy capacity would result in substantial economic damage. A slower rate of global warming provides some relief, but the most material environmental benefits won’t materialise until the second half of the century.
