The world is heating up! How can your firm cut its climate impact and pivot its business model?

Challenge

It is a fact, the global climate is heating up due, in no small part, to carbon emissions.

The 2016 Paris Agreement committed signatory governments to minimize greenhouse gas emissions and report on their progress. National governments have announced initial actions to meet their obligations and these are going to have a major impact on firm’s operations.

Climate change will drive firms to amend their business models it will also present commercial opportunities for those that can pivot to the new, carbon neutral, environment.

There are two elements to the impact climate change has on firm’s business strategy:

  1. Reduced carbon emissions – firms need to reduce their direct and indirect greenhouse gas output and his impact their current products and production/operational model.
  2. Business opportunities – there will be new opportunities for low emissions businesses and production/operational processes.
