Overview

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns that society must achieve "net zero" global carbon emissions by 2050 to limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius and minimize the worst impacts of climate change. ("Net zero" means that any remaining emissions must be balanced by removals from the atmosphere through natural or technological means.) Meeting this goal will require rapid and far-reaching changes in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport and cities. In line with the IPCC recommendation, AMC has adopted an organizational "net zero" by 2050 goal, with an interim 45% reduction goal from 2010 levels by 2030. To meet these targets, we must reduce emissions using new approaches and innovative ways of thinking. AMC Senior Staff Scientist David Publicover and Research Fellow Arcadia Lee will discuss how we are working better understand our carbon footprint, the development of a strategic plan to meet this ambitious goal, the issues and challenges that need to be addressed, and the role that members and guests can play in this effort.
