This climate leadership handbook, Getting on track for 1.5 °C – How governments and businesses can supercharge decarbonisation, points to key actions that governments and businesses can and must take now to decarbonize and remain competitive.

The content of the handbook is as follows: 

  • Action is cheaper than inaction
    A potential 1.5 °C future holds numerous benefits, which is in stark contrast to the detrimental consequences of runaway climate change.
  • A global energy system in need of transformation
    A decarbonised energy system can tackle 73 % of global emissions. We lay out why leadership is needed to supercharge the energy transition.
  • How governments can decarbonise and scale power generation
    The private sector is ready to deliver on the huge green electrification of the energy system. We highlight the steps governments can take to unlock that investment
  • How to scale renewable hydrogen for hard-to-electrify sectors
    Hydrogen and green fuels can decarbonise activities that cannot easily be decarbonised through electrification. We highlight five steps to scale supply and demand for these technologies to achieve cost-effectiveness.
  • What the private sector must do
    The private sector must lead in delivering the investment and solutions needed to combat climate change. We showcase tangible actions companies can take to ensure climate and nature are at the heart of business.

  • Ørsted’s commitment
    At Ørsted, we try to practice what we preach by decarbonising our entire supply chain and bringing biodiversity and circularity requirements front and centre.
  • The energy system of the future
    A world that runs entirely on green energy is within our grasp. Here is what the energy system of the future could look like.
