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. In contrast, our response to the rising global temperatures and the challenges ahead has not had the urgency that prompted governments and the scientific community to develop several vaccines in just one year in response to COVID-19.
This Week’s Must Read is an insight piece from David Knipe, Oliver Wyman on the similarities between climate change and COVID-19.
Despite the near-term challenges of COVID-19, there is still much to be done for governments and investors regarding the energy transition, yet sustainability concerns are gaining momentum around the world.
The objective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 is a priority, unfortunately, halted by the pandemic we are going through. 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.
For some decades now, scientists have warned us about the harms of massive deforestation, wildlife poaching, and the fact that diseases pass from animals to humans, triggering uncontrollable pandemics. The need for collective action has never been more crucial to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals adopted in 2015.
