Conclusions

Innovation has been at the heart of human civilisation for some 2.4 million years. Our recent innovation periods of the scientific, industrial, and technological revolutions have paved a pathway to becoming a victim of our own success and we are now subsequently wrestling with how to get back to pre-industrial levels of emissions through the current sustainability revolution.

The next part in our series examines what might be the top challenges of net zero within this current era and how innovation must form a key part of the answer.
