Description

The decline in greenhouse gas emissions caused by the pandemic is the largest ever recorded. However, despite the Covid-19 crisis’ immense social and economic cost, its impact on global temperature will only be marginal. So far, investments for a green recovery represent only 1% of the $12 trillion currently planned by major economies. With fossil fuels accounting for 80% of the global energy mix, can we accelerate the decarbonization of the economy? This panel will discuss commitments that main actors, including in the oil sector, can make in a context where oil markets are showing unprecedented volatility and the pandemic is putting pressure on investments in renewable energies.
