Net zero carbon cities

Accenture is supporting the World Economic Forum to localize Net Zero through the Net Zero Carbon Cities program. Cities are the frontline in tackling climate change – representing both the biggest challenge and opportunity to keep warming well below 2°C. Currently, more than half of the global population live in cities, consuming 78% of the world’s primary energy. generating more than 70% of global carbon emissions. By 2050, over two-thirds of the world population are set to live in cities. Changes need to happen now to reduce emissions and deliver resilient and equitable urban ecosystems. The mission is to create an enabling environment for clean electrification and circularity, resulting in urban decarbonization and resilience. The program aims to do this by fostering public private collaboration to bridge the gap across the energy, built environment and transport sectors.

Accenture supported the World Economic Forum’s Electricity Industry Action group in creation of the System Value framework, which more holistically evaluates economic, environmental, social and technical outcomes of potential energy solutions. The framework can be used to support a diverse range of activities including investment decisions, policy decisions, as well as public-private dialogues between business, regulators and policy makers on solutions to accelerate economic growth and a clean energy transition.
