This Vienna lecture highlights possible transformation paths to climate neutrality. How much time we have left and which climate risks can still be avoided depends on how quickly we can structurally change central systems such as energy, food, mobility and industry.

The presentation will highlight the role of different sectors and world regions to realize a future net-zero carbon emissions system. Technological, organizational and behavioral innovations on the demand side play a special role here in order to reduce energy and material requirements.

The resulting transformation would not only bring benefits for the environment, but is also economically more attractive and socially fairer in the long term.
