Ambition Net Zero: The Optimal Pace for The Energy Transition

June 8, 2021
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

We are pleased to invite you to the 3rd webinar from the series, Ambition Net Zero: The Optimal Pace for The Energy Transition, organised by the INSEAD Alumni Association The Netherlands and the INSEAD Alumni Energy Global Club.

Some key questions that will be exploring in this webinar:

  • How quickly should the global economy transition towards carbon neutrality?
  • Should we do everything we can to achieve the Paris targets and stay below a 1.5-2°C temperature rise or should we accept that we’ll move more slowly?
  • What would it cost to accelerate the transition and achieve those targets?
  • On the other side, what would the economic impact be if we maintain the current pace and don’t move fast enough to achieve the Paris targets?
