Business leaders will do extraordinary things to fundamentally change the way society operates, functions and consumes products on the path to net zero by 2050.

That's the forecast from James Close, Head of the Circular Economy Programme for London at the London Waste and Recycling Board - he said the net zero world in 2050 will be "very different" in terms of what's being produced, with the global economy shifting to one centred around services rather than products.

Speaking to future Net Zero Founder Sumit Bose, he stressed while there is a need to decarbonise electricity production and the grid, it is also vital to think about and reduce consumption-based emissions from areas such as food, waste, plastics and the built environment.
