Every first and third Monday of the month, The Straits Times analyses the beat of the changing environment, from biodiversity conservation to climate change.
Reaching “net-zero emissions” is an aspiration of many companies and governments worldwide. Some plan to reach this target by 2050, while others, including China and Singapore, have set themselves a longer timeline to reach this. But what does this goal really mean, and how do entities plan to get there? How much can renewable energy contribute to this global fight?
In this episode, ST environment correspondent Audrey Tan and climate change editor David Fogarty discuss the road to net-zero with Dr Jeffrey Logan, from the Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute at the University of Colorado Boulder.
