In a critical update from the PwC Net Zero Economy Index 2023, it has been revealed that the global efforts to mitigate climate change are falling dangerously short. The report emphasizes an urgent need to accelerate the rate of decarbonisation to 17.2% annually, a pace seven times faster than current efforts, to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Despite the grim projections, a surge in renewable energy adoption, particularly in solar and wind energy sectors, offers a beacon of hope. As nations grapple with the growing divergence between climate change ambitions and reality, the call for united, accelerated action has never been louder.
