The PwC Low Carbon Economy Index evaluates the rate of decarbonisation of the global economy that is needed to limit warming to 2°C. This is based on a carbon budget that would stabilise atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations at 450 ppm and give a 50% probability of limiting warming to 2°C.
This report shows that global carbon intensity decreased between 2000 and 2011 by around 0.8%a year. In 2011, carbon intensity decreased by just 0.7%.The global economy now needs tocut carbon intensity by 5.1% every year from now to 2050 to achievethis carbon budget. This requiredrate of decarbonisation has not been seen even in a single year since the mid-20th century whenthese records began.
Keeping to the 2°C carbon budget will requireunprecedented and sustainedreductions over four decades.Governments’ ambitions to limit warming to 2°C appear highly unrealistic.

We are pleased to announce that the ISEP ( Instep Sustainable Events Programme) will incorporate the recently released ISO 20121. The London 2012 Olympics were the first event to incorporate this standard into the event. This sustainable event standard is almost identical to BS8901 and will over time replace the BS 8901 in most areas of the world. Instep will phase out BS8901 over the next 12 months and current events will be changed over as we progress through their programme.
Gotong Royong@SOTA is a SOTA-led platform dedicated to social advocacy, community projects, and sharing of experiences and insights. It’s part of a student initiative aiming to help youth get together to better engage and impact communities.
It is meant for people who are interested and passionate about making a difference in society, both locally and internationally.
GR (Gotong Royong for short) provides a platform for like-minded youth to exchange experiences and ideas, and allow for networking and collaboration. We hope that this will be a movement where you can be fully involved in a good cause. GR does not just stop here – we hope that it will inspire you to start and sustain community projects.
Moving forward, we hope that GR will trigger awareness not just about the issue, but about the action we can take to tackle it. If we can tap on the creativity and vibrancy of youths, we are confident that we can leave an enduring impact on various communities.
Come join the conversation and let’s Gotong Royong together!
