Infrastructure is a big part of the world’s climate change challenge—but how can the transition to net-zero global infrastructure be achieved? Oxford Economics, in partnership with PwC, created a framework to interpret the global green infrastructure transition through a sample of 80 representative countries. We have constructed an index summarising a range of indicators to compare countries on two dimensions: the 'decarbonization challenge' and 'capacity to pay.' These important components indicated different decision-making needs depending on a country's development level. The temptation to defer these decisions remains high, but this only passes the buck, increasing pressure on future generations and the affordability of the transition to net-zero.
