Key messages
• Technological, societal and nature-based solutions should work together to enable systemic change
towards a regenerative society, and to deliver net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
• Prioritise research into efficient, low-carbon and carbon-negative solutions for sectors that are difficult
to decarbonise; i.e. energy storage, road transport, shipping, aviation and grid infrastructure.
• Each solution should be assessed with respect to GHG emissions reductions, energy efficiency and
societal implications to provide a basis for developing long-term policies, maximising positive impact
of investment and research effort, and guiding industry investors in safe and responsible planning.
