Since its inception in 2007, the Zero Carbon Britain project has offered the hard data and confidence required for visualising a future where we have risen to the demands of climate science. It has helped to reduce fear and misunderstandings and open new, positive, solution-focused conversations.

In a new report out now, a pathway to a strong and sustainable net zero society is outlined – not as an ideal, but as a concrete, science-driven strategy.

The key findings of the report include:

  • Net zero is achievable
  • Scenarios can help overcome carbon lock-in
  • Every country should have a zero carbon scenario
  • Game over for wasteful energy use
  • We have the tools to move beyond fossil fuels
  • Land use is a key missing piece
  • Thinking ahead pays off
  • Scenario building processes must reflect a fair and inclusive future

All in all, the report shows how much more ambitious we can and should be. This closely echoes the message of the Global 100% Renewable Energy Platform.

A recommended read. The report is available at: http://www.zerocarbonbritain.org/
