Webinar: How to reach ’net zero‘ by 2050?

August 2022

Veranstaltungsdatum: 21st September 2022

HGF hosted a webinar on 21st September, where Chris Goodall briefly examined the major changes that will need to take place in industries as diverse as electricity generation, steel manufacture and farming to move the UK to ‘net zero’ by 2050.

How will the world slow and then reverse the growth in greenhouse gas emissions?

The transition is not going to be simple or painless but the routes to a fully decarbonised society are now clear. This webinar will give insight into:

  • Renewable sources of power
  • Green hydrogen
  • Energy efficiency
  • Reduced utilisation of natural resources
  • ‚Circular‘ economy
  • Agriculture
  • Restoration programmes for soils and trees
  • Aviation
  • Cement
  • Capturing CO2 from the air

This presentation covers all these areas, attempting to give a sense both of the scale of the challenge and the available routes to reduce emissions. Intertwined into the material are brief discussions of how much societies will be able to rely on technological improvements and how much behavioural and wider social change will be required.
