RIYADH, Oct 23 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's newly-announced
goal to reach zero-net emissions by 2060 could be achieved
earlier and would not have any adverse financial or economic
impact on the world's top oil exporter, the Saudi energy
Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman al-Saud,
speaking at the Saudi Green Initiative summit, also said most
technology needed to cut emissions would mature by 2040 and that
the kingdom "needs time to do things properly".
He said the world needs all sources of energy.
