With pursuit of RNG, hydrogen, CCS and renewables, we’re accelerating society’s transition to a lower-carbon world
Submitted by Enbridge Inc.
Society must move more forcefully to combat global warming, the world’s top climate scientists warned Monday in a new report that says existing solutions and innovation offer hope—but not without action.
Enbridge welcomes the thought and discussion the study by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will prompt in the coming days. We are committed to building a bridge to the energy future, to remaining engaged and focused on such an important global issue, and to finding and implementing impactful solutions.
The IPCC said limiting global warming to around 1.5 degrees Celsius will require global greenhouse gas emissions to peak before 2025—at the latest—and be reduced to 43% by 2030. Global temperatures will stabilize when carbon dioxide emissions reach net zero, the report says.
Here are some key initiatives Enbridge has taken in our quest to bridge to the energy future while continuing to provide access to affordable, reliable and increasingly sustainable low-emissions energy:
