Bloomberg Daybreak: Europe
Going Net Zero Might Be Less Costly Than Expected
BCG’s Jens Burchardt joins the Bloomberg Daybreak: Europe podcast to discuss how to cut Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions by more than half in industries such as food, fast-moving consumer goods, and automotive without additional costs. Burchardt explains that, for many industries, first-mover disadvantage doesn’t hold when looking at decarbonization costs. He also talks about the much larger problem of upstream emissions, arguing that while addressing them can be expensive, the cost impact for the end consumer is quite low.
