Energy systems power growth in all economies. We are at the point of a clean energy future. Although fossil fuels will continue to form an important portion of economic growth for the near future, a shift to the low carbon economy means a fast scale-up in new and established alternative power sources and technologies.
Rapidly dropping costs are increasing the market share of renewable energies. Greater investment in energy proficiency – in businesses, buildings, and transport – has huge potential to cut and manage demand. In emerging countries, decentralized renewables can help provide electricity for more than one billion people without existing access.
Food and land use efficiency will regulate whether the world can feed a population projected to grow to over nine billion by 2035 while nourishing natural environments. Food production can be increased, rural revenue development improved, gender balance raised, jungles protected and land use emissions cut by raising crop and livestock efficiency, using new technologies and inclusive approaches to soil and water management.
By 2030, an estimated 70% of the global population will live in cities, driving 80% of total energy demand and 70% of global GHG emissions. The business opportunities for optimistic development in this area are compelling.
This way will help us build improved, smarter cities – where every individual has admittance to life-changing technology, delivering health care, education, and connectivity. We’re outcome ways to build Zero Emission Cities (ZEC), circular economies and maximize energy-efficient infrastructure. We’re helping cities around the world to improve their sustainable mobility and transport with our important indicator set and tools.
The days of determining business success through financial metrics alone are over. Our vision is that by 2035, all companies will measure, value and report their true value, true costs and true revenues.
