Webinar recording: Decarbonisation: Making a net zero economy possible

Download this recording and hear from the experts about the road to achieving a net zero economy, with a focus on carbon-heavy industries that are key to achieving this goal.


Since the ground-breaking Paris Agreement in 2015, governments have declared their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) to fighting climate change.

However, for these NDCs to have any impact, industries such as the power and energy, mining, finance and transportation – will have to take accountability in their operations.

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), we have until 2030 to reduce carbon emissions to limit temperature increases below 2°C, in line with the Paris Agreement.

In order to meet the ambitions of the Paris Agreement, CO2 emissions will need to fall to net zero by 2050.
