How do we get to “net-zero” carbon emissions and will this solve climate change?

Andres Clarens, professor in the Department of Engineering Systems and Environment and associate director of the UVA Environmental Resilience Institute, will discuss commitments to achieving “net-zero” carbon emissions that states and institutions, including Virginia and UVA, are making to respond to the climate crisis. Clarens will discuss what it will take to achieve these targets, the big unanswered questions, and the ways in which this transition will impact all of us.

This event is part of ERI’s two-week Climate Ambition Summit focusing on how the University of Virginia can play a leading role in discovering climate solutions. The summit will bring together UVA researchers, leading global experts, university leaders and the broader UVA community at this critical moment of opportunity to respond to the growing climate emergency.
