Netzero announcements ✅
But is the available carbon space being fairly shared?
➡️by 2050, China, the US, & the EU are likely to occupy over 90% of the available 1.5°C #carbonspace.
➡️by 2030, they would consume 45% of the available carbon space.
#Thread #India recently announced the National Hydrogen Mission & there's growing interest among leading industry players in #greenhydrogen.
But why is green H2 significant for India's #energytransition? #pressrelease: bit.ly/3l3b8fc
In a new study, we examined how #greenhydrogen can help in cleaner steelmaking. We found that:
▶️9% blend of #green H2 in steel making would ⬇️India's emissions footprint by 68%
▶️This #greensteel would be competitive with upper range of conventional steel costs at current rates

Did developed countries meet the pre-2020 #climateaction commitments?
Our new study found that
➡️Major developed countries — including all G7 countries — cut #emissions by just 3.7%
➡️ Developed countries collectively consumed 25 GtCO2eq additional #carbon space
Why is the pre-2020 era significant?
All countries must now significantly raise #climate ambitions to limit warming to 1.5°C. But, given the principle of equity & common but differentiated responsibilities, the onus of reducing #emissions lay on #developed countries pre-2020.
