Once seen as a peripheral issue for business, climate change – and our response to it – now takes center stage in the strategic planning of businesses and organizations.
As the physical impact of climate change becomes more evident and public concern and activism escalate, businesses across all sectors face a growing range of climate-related risks, such as litigation and transition threats.
As these risks escalate, they can quickly devalue or immobilize a company's physical, human and intangible assets, creating the need for a resilient and sustainable business model. ( University of Cambridge)
The 2015 Cope 21 Paris Agreements adopted by 196 of the parties present set clear targets to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
By committing to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030 to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, the signatory members have affirmed their ambition for a better world.
Despite this, a 2018 IPCC report shows that if emissions continued to be emitted at the current rate, the planet would expect 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2040.
After a lackluster Cope 27, it is important for all players around the world to finally take into consideration the capital issues that will make it possible to reduce global warming as much as possible.
In order to support companies towards net zero emissions, it is essential to have
a comprehensive understanding of how best to mitigate the business, social and environmental risks of climate change and oversee a low-carbon transition.
A company with a resilient low-emission business model will improve the potential longevity of your organization and unlock new opportunities for growth and innovation, now and in the future.
For this we propose a balance sheet in three stages:
- A calculation of the carbon footprint.
- A UN labeling of our results.
- Solutions to bring companies to net zero emissions or carbon offsetting through the support of micro-algae farms.
