A one tonne future - a guide to the low-carbon century
Celebrating its centenary in 2009, Vattenfall chose to take a closer look at the next 100 years. The focus was on the question: how will humanity respond to climate change?
A study by Vattenfall’s climate policy team, in collaboration with a network of experts and leaders in the field, was presented in the book A one tonne future – a guide to the low-carbon century. The core of this book contains an argument: that solutions can be found, that they will evolve over time, and that it is up to humanity to prove that it has the capacity to unlock and implement them.
