RMI’s Reaction to the IPCC’s Working Group III Report on Climate Change Mitigation
Boulder, CO – April 4, 2022
Responding to the publication today of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Working Group III report on climate change mitigation, RMI Chief Program Officer Jon Creyts said:
Today’s IPCC Report makes clear that we have the tools and insights to innovate and avoid the worst consequences of climate change, if we go all-in right away. At RMI, we agree. It’s go time. The IPCC has corroborated the steps, ones RMI has been hard at work developing, testing and scaling. Like the IPCC, we know that to address climate change, we need to do nothing short of transform the global economy, changing markets to recognize that everything we use and make — buildings, transportation, industry and the electricity grid — must get more efficient and cleaner.
While daunting, we have never and will never give up hope. We must keep in mind that the outcome of this large-scale transformation is not only a habitable world, but also one that promises to be cleaner, fairer, healthier and more resilient for all.
