Net-zero emissions pledges matter

Chuck McConnell, a former assistant secretary of Energy in the Obama administration, writes that net-zero emissions pledges matter.

The C3 Take
  • Across all industries, including oil and gas, more and more companies are making net-zero commitments.
  • While critics have, sometimes fairly, labeled these commitments as greenwashing, these pledges are important for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
  • To reach decarbonization goals, we will need businesses and industry to lead the way.
  • The net-zero pledges that we have seen over the last few years offer up an encouraging sign that the private sector is ready to lead.

“We cannot grow by subtraction. We must innovate, deploy the technology we have today and support the innovation necessary for the future and not be bound by only what we know today as the solutions. Transformation requires a vision and investment.”
