Our partner Remy de Tonnac recently spoke to Environment Analyst on how to successfully deliver global sustainable transformation.
Remy highlights the urgency following the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which states that “without immediate and deep emissions reductions across all sectors, limiting global warming to 1.5°C is beyond reach“.
From installing a meaningful carbon tax, a new approach to carbon accounting, and massively increasing investments in clean technology, Remy sets out the vital steps needed to prevent the targets set out in the Paris Agreement from becoming unobtainable.
“Throughout history, rapid transformation only truly comes about after significant trauma. It is likely that it will take a cataclysmic climate event in a developed world country to do something similar to sustainability. This is hard to imagine, but the only thing worse than witnessing such a moment would be it to be repeated because we did not learn our lesson. So, we need to ensure that we are ready for this event, no matter what form it takes. Not just in being responsive and mitigating the initial impact, but having the systems, tools and mindset in place to cement the change that follows.”
