… cutting emissions, starting immediately, to net zero by the middle of this century would give a chance of limiting global warming to 1.5C…
Neil Gerrard writes in Construction Manager:
…. That’s according to Robert Spencer, Aecom’s business line director – ESG, following the launch of the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which has issued a stark warning of irreversible and unprecedented climate change brought about by human activity unless the world acts quickly to reduce emissions….
The IPCC found that cutting emissions, starting immediately, to net zero by the middle of this century would give a chance of limiting global warming to 1.5C in the long term and help avoid the worst effects of climate change.
The report is the first major review of climate change science since 2013 and comes ahead of the COP26 climate change summit, which is due to be held in Glasgow from 31 October until 12 November.
