Reducing carbon emissions but keeping a healthy economy

This page in:

On a day that media reports were dominated by talks on carbon emissions, one particular McKinsey & Co. report came to mind. It talks about Germany's goal to cut its carbon emissions without compromising its economy. Germany has a goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 40 percent of its 1990 numbers during the next 12 years. "By 2020, Germany could eliminate 30 percent of its 1990 level of greenhouse gas emissions, without curbing economic growth," says the report.

You can find the full report here, which contains a set of interactive features that explore the costs and opportunities of several carbon abatement measures.
