Deloitte's Report: The Turning Point

We cannot afford to waste another year, another month, debating the merits of doing something versus doing nothing. As leaders, every choice, every day is a chance to speed the realization of that vision.

  • Such a transformation could increase the size of the world economy by $43 trillion in net present value terms from 2021-2070. We have the technologies, business models, and policy approaches today to deliver rapid decarbonization and limit global warming to as close to 1.5°C by century’s end.

  • The status quo is the costlier choice. According to the modeling, unchecked climate change could cost the global economy US$178 trillion in net present value terms from 2021–2070. The human costs would be far greater: a lack of food and water, a loss of jobs, worsening health and well-being, and reduced standard of living.
