The Race To Net Zero – Why Business Leaders Can No Longer Be Neutral On Carbon Emissions

Gary Jeffery
Senior Partner and Global Head – Chemicals, Materials & Nutrition

1. Time for change

2021 will (fingers crossed) go down in history as the year the world started to take climate change seriously. In April, the UK and Chinese governments announced ambitious goals of achieving carbon zero by 2050 and 2060 respectively. America plans to achieve a 50-52% reduction from 2005 levels in economy-wide net greenhouse gas pollution by 2030.

In the corporate world, high-tech businesses such as Microsoft, Apple and Novo Nordisk and service companies such as EY, Sky and KPMG have set their sights on achieving carbon zero by 2030. The more energy intensive industries including manufacturers (Cemex, Holcim and Tetrapak), oil and gas firms (BP, Shell and Total) and airline companies (BA, American Airlines and Japan Airlines) plan to reach this target by 2050.
