The Last Mile of Decarbonization

The Last Mile of Decarbonization

At least a fifth of the world’s largest public companies have committed to net-zero targets, but how will they get there? Investments in the net-zero transition are measured over decades, and while companies may be able to clearly see the road to 2030, the bridge toward 2050 may be less clear. That’s because many industries can’t realistically decarbonize by employing renewable energy technologies like wind and solar alone.

The good news is: We already have many of the solutions at hand to bridge this gap. It’s not a question of having the technology — it’s a matter of employing and scaling that technology effectively. In this series sponsored by Black & Veatch, we’ll take a closer look at some of the new-market technologies that are laying the groundwork for a net-zero future across industries — from electrified fleets to hydrogen fuel cells.

The Road to Net Zero Is Paved With Emerging Technologies
Countries and companies must undertake aggressive decarbonization measures if they hope to align with the Paris Agreement and limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. Initial emissions reduction plans typically include proven technologies and solutions such as investing in solar and wind power, energy efficiency and electric vehicles. But the evasive,...
