Climate Change in a post-Covid world
This week’s must read
Today the pandemic has killed millions, shaken economies, and overwhelmed health care systems.

The short-term objectives are even more important, requiring the mobilization of all economic actors. Will it take a market overhaul to make it truly fit for a net-zero future?
While environmental issues have become priority concerns for governments, businesses, and consumers, the economic shock of the pandemic may well call into question their commitment to their race to net-zero emissions.

The need for collective action has never been more crucial to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals adopted in 2015.
