  • The complex and interconnected business ecosystems and diverse participants that are the building blocks of a low-carbon economy 
  • Five core systems of a net-zero economy—where they are today and need to be tomorrow
  • Carbon credit markets—one example of a cross-system opportunity and its interdependencies and connections
