Climate Action Stage



Fossil Fuel in a Net-Zero World: A dialogue across three perspectives

08 Dec 2023

Join AEON Collective, the University of Oxford and Clean Air Task Force for a fireside chat that probes the intricate relationship between energy needs, environmental imperatives, and modern civilisation. The phase-down or phase-out of unabated fossil fuels is not merely a technical issue but a profound societal challenge. What does abatement mean in this landscape, and how can it be translated into actionable paths? 

  • Present science, civil society, and industry perspectives  

  • Cross-sector dialogue on defining abatement and ambitious decarbonisation pathways 

  • Need for permanent and geological net zero for fossil fuel emissions and credible accounting
