Why We Can’t Tackle the Climate Crisis Without Addressing Global Inequality

Renat Heuberger, founding partner and CEO of South Pole, writes how a well-designed net-zero strategy must tackle the climate crisis and promote economic opportunities for the less privileged at the same time.

Heuberger also describes what a "net zero" strategy is.
