Leveraging Disruption to Save the Planet
Author: Morgan Stanley
By now, the alarms over climate change seem to be sounding nearly every week. The most recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a body of experts convened by the United Nations, warns that unless nations reduce carbon emissions by roughly 43% by 2030, slowing global warming to the point that averts catastrophe may be an unattainable goal. To meet that number, governments and industries worldwide need to collectively take drastic steps. But the path forward also calls for more disruptive solutions to a host of sustainability-related issues. It’s something several alums of our Multicultural Innovation Lab, Morgan Stanley’s in-house accelerator for start-ups with women and/or multicultural founders, are working hard to deliver, along with benefits to underserved communities.
