Back to McKinsey Themes

Now is the time for climate action

“We built this economy over the past 200 years. We’re going to have to radically change it over the next 30,” says Dickon Pinner, senior partner and global co-lead for McKinsey Sustainability. How can climate technology help speed the transition to net zero? And what actions can organizations take to mitigate the climate crisis? These and more questions will be addressed at Climate Week NYC 2022, which marks its fourteenth year as the biggest global climate event of its kind. The event, which kicks off tomorrow and boasts the tagline “Getting it Done,” will focus on three key themes:

  • Putting climate in context
  • The cold truths for a warming world
  • Investing in equity and the economy

Check out these insights to learn how innovation in technology and business models could create growth opportunities for companies that take action to protect the climate.
