Vision2050

The WBCSD’s cornerstone Vision 2050 report calls for a new agenda for business laying out a pathway to a world in which nine billion people can live well, and within the planet’s resources, by mid-century.

The report is a consensus piece that was compiled by 29 leading global companies from 14 industries and is the result of an 18 month long combined effort between CEOs and experts, and dialogues with more than 200 companies and external stakeholders in some 20 countries.

Must haves include:

Incorporating the costs of externalities, starting with carbon, ecosystem services and water, into the structure of the marketplace;

Doubling agricultural output without increasing the amount of land or water used;

Halting deforestation and increasing yields from planted forests;

Halving carbon emissions worldwide (based on 2005 levels) by 2050 through a shift to low-carbon energy systems;

Improved demand-side energy efficiency, and providing universal access to low-carbon mobility.

Vision 2050, with its best-case scenario for sustainability and pathways for reaching it, is a tool for thought leadership and a platform for beginning the dialogue that must take place to navigate the challenging years to come.
