IEA: Innovation needs in the Sustainable Development Scenario

"Innovation is central to the Sustainable Development Scenario. Almost 35% of the cumulative CO2 emissions reductions seen in the Sustainable Development Scenario by 2070 compared with the current trajectory come from technologies that are currently at the prototype or demonstration phase and that will not become available at scale without further R&D (including commercial demonstrators) and technical improvements."

Gilmore, Elisabeth A.; Buhaug, Halvard (2021): Climate mitigation policies and the potential pathways to conflict: Outlining a research agenda

Gilmore, Elisabeth A.; Buhaug, Halvard (2021): Climate mitigation policies and the potential pathways to conflict: Outlining a research agenda. In Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Climate Change, e722. DOI: 10.1002/wcc.722.

"To contribute to efforts for aligning climate policy with broader societal goals, specifically those related to sustainable development, we identify the effects of climate mitigation policy on aspects of socioeconomic development that are known determinants of conflict and evaluate the plausibility and importance of potential pathways to armed conflict and political violence."

C2G Talk: An interview with Youba Sokona: How do we include sustainable development when considering climate-altering approaches?

"Context matters and without clarity on the impacts that climate-altering approaches will have from different perspectives, it will be difficult to deal with the ethical and governance dimensions, said Youba Sokona during a C2GTalk interview. He highlights the need for research that not only considers the global level, but seeks to understand the national and local levels where people’s lives are impacted."

Microsoft: Sustainability: A year of progress and a decade of action

"We have reduced, we have removed, and we have learned a lot of lessons along the way. Importantly we have not done this alone – we have worked with suppliers, customers, competitors, partners, governments, and employees to make progress. The deep details of this work are encompassed in our first annual sustainability report and our carbon removal whitepaper."

Geology for Investors: Mining CO2 – Is Mining Atmospheric Carbon the Future of Environmental Sustainability?

"One of the goals of the Paris Agreement is to reduce GHG to keep global temperature increases under 2°C by 2100. Society must go beyond carbon neutrality and produce net negative carbon emissions to meet this goal. Recent research indicates that the mining industry could become a major player in achieving this end by capturing atmospheric CO2 in mine waste."

Ray, P. (2019): Renewable energy and sustainability

Ray, P. (2019): Renewable energy and sustainability. In Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy 21 (8), pp. 1517–1533. DOI: 10.1007/s10098-019-01739-4.

"Rough analysis presented here based on data that are commonly accepted, and mass and energy conservation principle with second law, seem to indicate that irrespective of correlation between carbon dioxide build-up and global warming, renewable energy, specifically direct solar energy will have to be adopted."
