The Climate Change Authority of #Australia has issued a report that pinpoints #CarbonSequestration as critical to reduce emissions.

"Storing C away from the atm is integral, both to avert #GHGs from entering the atm & to #remove them from it."

The report notes that "while conventional #CarbonAccounting is simple and economically flexible, it does not consider crucial differences between different sources and sinks of #GHG #emissions." As a result, 𝐈𝐭 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐥𝐥𝐨𝐰𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬: ⬇️
1️⃣ "The Government should prioritise the development of long-lived geological and mineral #storage technologies.

2️⃣ Measures to restore CO2 released from #CarbonSinks should be reviewed and enhanced as appropriate."

We know that +50% of green claims in the EU are misleading or unfounded. What's the Commission planning to do about it in the #GreenClaims proposal? Some initial thoughts on the proposal and #offsetting🧵1/…
🌱 The Green Claims Proposal has recognized the issues with climate-related claims such as "#carbonneutral" and "#netzero". Although it increases transparency, it doesn't do enough to actually tackle the use of misleading claims based on offsetting. 2/
📜In the recitals, the proposal acknowledges that claims relying on offsets outside the company's value chain can be misleading due to inaccuracies, lack of transparency, and double counting and that emission reductions within a trader's operations should be prioritized. 3/

Major companies’ #NetZero climate pledges largely fail test. 🚨 Our Corporate Climate Responsibility Monitor, launched today w/ @CarbonMrktWatch, finds: Companies have an immense potential for #ClimateAction but pledges lack transparency + integrity. 🧵⤵️…
2/ Background: Companies are increasingly alert to the #climatcrisis, facing calls to take responsibility for their environmental impact. The companies assessed in the report are major multinationals contributing to roughly 5% of global #GHG emissions.
3/ The #CCRM1 shows: Climate pledges of these 25 corporations on average only commit to emissions reductions of 40%, not ❌ 100% as suggested by their #netzero and #carbonneutral pledges. Collectively, they commit to reducing only <20% of their 2.7 GtCO2e emission footprint.

Everyone knows the term cryptocurrency

But few understand what blockchain technology is and how it's revolutionizing industries across the globe

A list of information on why you should research blockchain technology

--Thread-- Image
1. Blockchain is the underlying technology that cryptocurrencies are built upon.⛓

Yes, it's more than a digital currency.

Blockchain / DLT (distributed ledger technology) provides an immutable, digital ledger that is always updating with transactions happening in real-time. 📖 ImageImage
2. What are the benefits of using Blockchain or DLT?🤔

Check out the pictures below to see how DLT technology will revolutionize industries. 👇

The global carbon market is booming, it’s expected to reach $22 trillion by 2050.

So where did it all start?

A thread 🧵 of how a Mormon missionary and a future Reiki Master started it all in the 80’s

#CarbonCredits #CarbonOffset #Netzero
👇 (1/9)
In 1987, Applied Energy Services (@TheAESCorp) planned on building a ~180 MW coal-fired power plant in Connecticut.

The #coal plant would produce ~14 million tons of CO2 emissions over its lifetime.

Global warming was already making some waves & AES was concerned

👇 (2/9)
AES' CEO was former missionary & @HarvardAlumni - Roger Sant @santroger

Rogers’ "least-cost energy" strategy was revolutionary at the time.

@TheAESCorp's focus was minimizing the cost AND #environmental impact of #energy services.

So they needed a “green” solution

On 24 October, China released Top-level design document in the '1+N' Carbon Peak and Neutrality policy framework.

On the eve of #COP26, and 1 year after China announced 2060 carbon neutral pledge, the implications of this landmark doc are HUGE:

This doc is released by the Communist Party of China and General Office of the State Council:…

It is dated 22 September, and titled 'Opinions on Completely, Accurately and Comprehensively Implementing Carbon Peak and Carbon Neutrality'
This official policy document (the Opinions as above) is the 'top-level design' in China's '1+N' policy framework, i.e. the 1⃣

The N will be gradually released, consisting of Carbon peak action plan and detailed sectoral roadmaps

This statement is wrong, misleading, and dangerous. A thread 1/
With offsets, one entity continues to emit while another is paid to do something nice for the climate. #Offsets don't stop emissions. Offsets are the opposite of reducing emissions. 2/
The author seems to confuse #offsets with #removals. Don't do this. Yes, removals in forests and fields and grasslands are important to staying below 1.5C. But these are not offsets.

The Electric Mobility dilemma of Legacy vs New-Age

There is no doubt that Legacy Auto businesses might be able to leverage their scale, capital & experience to roll out EVs faster than EV startups..

But does that make them a better investment?


#Megatrends #investing

Historically, disruptive #innovation has always come from outside the traditional bounds of the industry.

From #Apple's iPhone📱 & #Amazon's AWS☁️ to
#SpaceX's Reusable Rockets🚀, the incumbents have more often than not, failed to innovate and/or spot the disruptors.


In case of Electric Mobility though, there's one critical factor that's keeping incumbents in the race: POLICY📜

Since EVs are now a necessity to reduce global #carbonfootprint & control the #ClimateCrisis, incumbents have no option but to cannibalize their products.

Tell me what you think: are #carbonneutral targets real, or just a form of green washing? 1/5
2. / Do you think companies striving to be carbon neutral will perform better over time?

Here's the performance of the basket since year-end 2017. While the BI Carbon-Neutral Theme Basket outperformed the MSCI ACWI in 1Q, it has trailed (slightly) over a longer-term basis. Image
3./ Will all companies eventually need a carbon target to satisfy #ESG investors?

No real surprise here -- our carbon neutral theme basket has grown over time as more and more companies pledge to become carbon neutral. We currently have 179 companies in the group. Image

Carbon capture: is it worth pursuing?

Get the basics in this thread 👇

#cleanenergy #carbonneutral #carbonfootprint #carboncapture #CO2

The global energy demand is growing and so are the associated emissions.

In order to meet goals of Paris agreement, cutting greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) are needed.

Current CO2 concentration in atmosphere: 410 ppm
Target to meet 1.5 deg rise: 350 ppm
2/Carbon Capture
Adopting low carbon and renewable sources of energy along cannot help reach target emissions .

Carbon (CO2) capture at-scale is a bridge as the energy mix shifts.

* CO2 can removed from flue / burnt gases
* Pulling from ambient air, direct air capture

The world is causing #GlobalWarming through excessive #CO2 #emissions: The #CarbonFootprint, which equals CF per person multiplied by #population, of the current (2016) world population of 7.5 billion uses the carbon sequestration capacity of 2.4 Earths. Image
The maximum #sustainable (“#CarbonNeutral”) #population at our current CF per person is only 3.1 billion. The maximum that would give everyone the current #QualityOfLife in the US, as measured by the UN’s #HumanDevelopmentIndex, is only 2 billion. Image
Since the start of CF tracking (1961), 64% of our #growth in CF has been caused by #population growth and only 36% by growth in personal #emissions (CF per person). Image
