In order to mitigate the effects of climate change, policy leaders, scientists, and governments all over the world agreed to limit global warming to well below 2, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels. This is in accordance with the Paris Agreement adopted in 2015.

Noting the current amount of carbon emissions in the atmosphere, 136 countries pledged to reach net zero during the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), with countries like the US – who are responsible for almost half of global emissions – aiming to do so by 2050. 

This is especially relevant for the Philippines, which is one of the countries at greatest risk to climate-related hazards.

In order to reach net zero – meaning any greenhouse gases produced by a country or organization are offset by an equal amount of emissions that are reduced – rapid decarbonization must be done.

Wondering what this is and how we can go about it? Read the infographic below.
