As the nation turns from politics to policy, we invite you to join sustainability thought leaders from across the nation for a lively dialogue focused on how to put the United States on a trajectory to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Hosted by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) USA Co-Chairs, the December 10 Workshop will highlight the pathways to deep decarbonization identified in America's Zero Carbon Action Plan (ZCAP) – a comprehensive climate change strategy developed by the Zero Carbon Consortium, a network of nearly a hundred researchers from across the nation (find the Executive Summary attached). This Workshop will bring together leading experts to discuss key technologies, policies, and sector-specific game plans to achieve net-zero emissions and simultaneously strengthen the U.S. economy. We are eager to have you join the conversation as we explore the technical, political, and economic dimensions of the transition to a clean energy future.
