Achieving net zero requires rewiring the global economy, including fundamental technological and structural change across all sectors. Whether agriculture or transport, electricity or industry, each sector faces unique challenges to decarbonize while simultaneously addressing competitiveness concerns and distributional impacts. However, driving down GHG emissions also provides opportunities, particularly around new approaches to production and consumption. This plenary will explore how sectors will need to evolve and adapt to achieve net zero targets, and how carbon pricing fits into the puzzle.
