In this second instalment of Worley and Princeton University’s Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment’s groundbreaking series, we build upon the foundation laid in Paper 1 and take a deeper dive into the practical aspects of achieving net zero by mid-century. 

What's new in paper 2:

  • Measuring change: While Paper 1 outlined the five key shifts (FATR shifts) needed for net zero delivery, Paper 2 explores the shifts further and introduces 15 leading indicators of change to measure, adjust and correct our infrastructure delivery practices. A commitment is also made to establish a global survey conducted by Princeton University to track progress across influential stakeholder groups from 2023 to 2030.
  • A new case study: An exploration of the Australian energy economy, highlighting the scale of the challenge and the similarities with the U.S., as examined in Paper 1.

Access the full paper now to explore the new insights and tools introduced in Paper 2 and learn how to convert thinking into action to make your net-zero ambitions a reality. Discover how authentic ESG-charged partnerships, standardized design, confident supply chains, fully immersed communities, digital overhaul, honesty, and transparency will get us to net zero by mid-century.
