Environmental Finance – The Global Carbon Budget: the numbers that tell the truth on climate action

Pressure is mounting for governments, investors, and corporations alike to urgently act on their Nationally Determined Contributions and net-zero goals. Additionally, the war in Ukraine has brought to the fore questions of fossil fuel dependency and the need to accelerate the energy transition, now.

New Global Carbon Budget projections – being released at COP27, Egypt – will showcase not only how much progress has been made in the past year to reduce CO2 emissions, but also how many years of “carbon budget” we have left.

Join us to learn about the Global Carbon Budget, last year’s carbon emissions trends, and the remaining total carbon budget if we are to stay on the 1.5°C pathway. The webinar will be led by the University of Exeter Professor and lead author of the Global Carbon Budget, Pierre Friedlingstein.
