About this book

In Drawdown, renowned environmentalist Paul Hawken has assembled a team of over 200 scholars, scientists, policymakers, business leaders, and activists to illustrate the hundred most substantive solutions to combat climate change that together will not only slow down the growth of carbon emissions but reverse them altogether. Drawdown analyses how and when humanity can reach climate drawdown, the point at which greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere begin to decline on a year-to-year basis, by mapping and modelling how we can scale those hundred technologies over the next thirty years. Printed on recycled paper, Drawdown the book, will be one of three centrepieces to Project Drawdown, which will also feature an open-source database and an interactive digital platform that together describe how these solutions can be scaled globally across continents and across many different ways of life.

These are all no-regrets approaches – actions that regardless of their climate value have intrinsic benefits to communities and economies. They improve lives, create jobs, restore the environment, enhance security, generate resilience, and advance human health. Together they will mobilise society into taking the climate change conversation from problem definition to problem-solving, from fear and apathy to collaboration and regeneration.

Drawdown is the first book that describes the full gamut of substantive solutions to climate change.
