The race to net-zero is on — but no one wins if we take shortcuts

As the 2050 deadline approaches, the switch to electric is now inevitable. But we would be foolish to believe the trip will be easy. So, following a wave of carbon neutrality announcements from car manufacturers, and the lingering uncertainty about this constitutes credible net-zero goals, Polestar calls for action above aspirations.

Green intentions and opaque promises all look impressive, but climate neutrality is not subject to interpretation. Either something exists or it doesn’t. Greenwashing only serves to hinder real progress, leading people to believe they are making a difference when they are not.

Climate neutrality can only be achieved by achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions through elimination or elimination. By effort and innovation. Time came to clean automobile industry.

1.5 ° C difference

In the 2015 Paris Agreement, governments agreed to implement measures to maintain the Temperature below 2 ° C. In 2018, the The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change corrected this to a maximum of 1.5 ° C.

As the point of no return quickly approaches and the responsibility rests in the hands of all of us, GHG emissions must be halved by 2030 and drop to zero by 2050.
