Description

Almost everyone has a target for reducing CO2 emissions. Not only governments in Europe, the United States, China and India, even the largest businesses in the world have joined the club. The goal is to prevent the earth’s temperature from rising more than 1.5 degrees. The striking omission, however, is a coherent framework for action, which empowers individuals and incentivises nations.

Supercharge Me is a fast-paced, clearly-written, manual on how to accelerate the green transition. Written by Eric Lonergan, a leading policy economist and author of the bestselling Angrynomics, and Corinne Sawers, a sustainability and climate expert, the book introduces the concept of "supercharging", a new framework for accelerating our response to climate change. Through a series of high impact policy hacks, Supercharge Me will embolden activists, reinvigorate the disheartened, and reframe the climate crisis as an opportunity.

The book is structured as a dialogue, where Lonergan’s expertise in markets and economics is combined with Sawers’ extensive knowledge of the climate challenge and business transformation. The authors’ appreciation of the realities of human psychology, politics and how companies work, make this one of the most accessible and practical guides to the climate crisis.
