Let’s close the gap on decarbonisation

    By scaling the solutions we already have, we can decarbonise our world and achieve net zero emissions. Let’s co-create a future that’s decarbonised to net zero.

    Scaling existing solutions to decarbonise our world

    Decarbonisation is essential for achieving net zero emissions. But current efforts alone are not enough to bring global carbon emissions to net zero by 2050.

    By scaling and accelerating the deployment of existing technologies and solutions, we can reach this goal.

    To close the gap, we must accelerate the rollout of renewables and ramp up capacity in our electrical grids. We must fuel industry and transport through new technologies, such as green hydrogen, and reduce the amount of embodied carbon in the built environment.

    Let’s co-create a future that’s decarbonised to net zero.

    can be added to the global economy by 2030 through low carbon growth (NCE, 2018)

    Actions for carbon neutrality

    • : 57 times

      more offshore wind must be installed by 2050 to reach global carbon neutrality (GWEC, 2021)

    • : 306 million

      tonnes of green hydrogen are required per year for a net zero world by 2050 (IEA, 2021)

    • : 40%

      of current global carbon emissions originate from the building sector (IEA, 2019)

    What practical steps can be taken to slash embodied carbon in buildings & infrastructure?

    Recommended stories on decarbonisation

    • Paving the way for net zero concrete

      Concrete is cheap, reliable – and a growing source of carbon emissions. Sustainable design and carbon capture storage are solutions that are expected to close the gap on net zero concrete.  

    • The missing link in green hydrogen

      With little existing production, how do we know when and where to build green hydrogen pipelines? It requires all parts of the value chain to collaborate on timings, investments, and demand for infrastructure.

    • Keeping decarbonisation on track in the energy crisis

      Many companies have set net zero goals and are gradually switching to green energy. Planning and consumption choices are key to staying the course on decarbonisation through the present energy crisis.

    How we close the decarbonisation gap

    • World’s largest direct air capture project

      Decarbonising to net zero will require innovation and advances in technology. Commercial-scale direct air capture offers a new opportunity to help achieve net zero emissions.


    • Accelerating the scaling of green energy

      Ambitious work is underway on the world’s first energy islands – marking the next phase in the green energy transition.
