Our planet’s average temperature is already 1.1° Celsius warmer than pre-industrial levels, we have to reduce emissions and reach net zero by 2050 to avoid a climate disaster. We are already experiencing abnormal climate events due to the increased temperatures including oceans becoming more acidic, sea levels rising and the loss of polar ice caps. The time to act is now. This pathway by former governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney and Director of Financial Stability and the Bank of England, Sarah Breeden, will outline the scale of the challenge we face, and what is being done to prevent a climate crisis, by global organisations and the Bank of England.

The price of meeting net zero is estimated to be between $100-150 trillion over the next 30 years. Regardless of this cost, we need to reach net zero before climate change does irreversible damage to the environment and the economy. This video helps us understand the need to reach net zero, outlines the cost of reaching net zero and finally explains where the money will come from.
To reach the $100-150bn required to meet net zero, significant commitments will need to be made over the coming years, new initiatives are starting up to encourage this investment such as GFANZ. This video outlines the commitments to reach net zero and further highlights how we can get the money where it is needed.
