There is growing urgency for both businesses and governments to limit global warming to no more than 1.5°C, to protect human health and economic growth. At current rates of emissions we have until 2030 - just over two business cycles - before we reach this threshold of dangerous climate change. Avoiding it will require rapid and radical transformation of every sector of the global economy - halving global emissions by 2030 and reaching ‘net zero’ carbon emissions by 2050.
There is an imperative on all organisations, large to small, public and private, to make achieving net zero central to short, medium and long term strategy and decision making. A growing number of leading companies, governments and investors have committed to net zero, and are embracing the opportunity to drive innovation, increase competitiveness, and stimulate resilient growth.
We work with clients from all industries to understand the implications of the net zero transition underway for their organisations. This starts with understanding the materiality of climate risk and opportunity, and the implications for the organisation’s strategy. Then we work together to deliver the required organisational transformation and help establish robust transparent reporting, governance and assurance to ensure accountability, regulatory compliance and the delivery of stakeholder expectations.
