The Economics of Climate Change
Climate change is powering the demand for sustainable growth around the world. The desire to protect our planet is transforming industries, and having a lasting impact on the way we live and work together. The economics of climate change offers insights and answers to these global challenges.
Governments and businesses have joined a global movement to reach net zero by 2050. Policy, finance and regulation are all under the microscope when it comes to facilitating this transformation. Progress is being made, but the call from those driving change is for faster, sustainable, more impactful, more meaningful action.
By bringing clarity to the trade-offs, incentives and behaviours that are critical to a low-carbon future, climate economics and finance can provide pathways for how, together, we can bring about a sustainable transition.
“Economics is the study of how to allocate scarce resources to meet unlimited human wants. It provides us with a toolkit to support the agents and innovations that are delivering decarbonisation.”Sahar Shamsi
