The effects of climate change will only get worse if emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) are not radically reduced. “Net zero” refers to the goal of eliminating or offsetting all GHG emissions, in order to limit the rise in the earth’s temperature to no more than 1.5°C. Getting to net zero will not be easy or without cost — and the world still needs to grow. What would it take to reach net zero? As for jobs, McKinsey estimates that getting to net zero could mean the loss of 187 million jobs globally by 2050.
