Deep Decarbonization Pathways

January 23, 2020 • 10:00 am – 12:00 pm EST

Climate Solutions Series, Session #1

To stabilize the climate and prevent the most catastrophic effects of climate change, we must reduce global greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by or soon after 2050. This will require a range of strategies and mechanisms including technological innovation, public policy, and private investment. We are pleased to launch the Climate Solutions Series, a year-long initiative which will bring together a wide range of audiences over six sessions to examine global pathways to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in different sectors of the economy.

The first session will look at various pathways to net-zero emissions, ranging from a significant reduction in fossil fuel consumption and major behavior changes with little reliance on “negative emissions,” to smaller structural changes with a heavy reliance on technologies to reduce carbon from point sources and the atmosphere. The event will feature a presentation on these various pathways, followed by a facilitated discussion featuring perspectives from multiple levels of government.

This series is made possible by the generous support of JPMorgan Chase & Company.
