Generation IM 2022 Sustainability Trends Report
This series of annual reports surveys the broad landscape of what we often call the “sustainability revolution”.
We believe this transition is still in its earliest stages, and that accelerating it is essential to human welfare and to the preservation of the natural world. Each year, we take stock: where does the transition stand now, and where must it go next?
Two major developments this year have raised the chances of a rapid acceleration in the transition to clean energy. The Ukraine war has thrown the risks of European dependence on Russian fuels into sharp relief, prompting the European Union to raise its goals for renewable energy. Additionally, a new law in the United States could potentially cut emissions to as much as 40 percent below 2005 levels.
