Exponential Climate Action Roadmap
Halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2030: Roadmap shows what’s needed in each sector. Digital revolution and market forces poised to drive economic transformation away from fossil fuels, but not without the right policy mix and bold climate leadership.
"As a sustainability pioneer in the private-sector, we have been both an advocate of climate action and investing in research and development of climate solutions. We understand the urgency for action. We believe leveraging new technology, such as digitalization and 5G, will be fundamental to reduce carbon emissions by half every decade i.e. meet the Carbon Law. As a company, we have cut our own emissions by 50% and are working to meet further reduction targets. We have demonstrated solutions that help make it possible and now other companies and policy-makers must join the quest for broader adoption of solutions to enable exponential reduction of carbon emissions globally."
Börje Ekholm, CEO and President Ericsson
Stronger policies, an acceleration of the digital revolution and greater climate leadership are necessary to fast track the economic transformation, say the authors.
