The challenge of eliminating carbon emissions
Decarbonization is a challenge because it can be hard, often involving major changes to the way things have always been done. But it is also an opportunity, for there are business benefits to environmental sustainability.
These include reaping savings and opening up new sources of revenue as new processes are put into place that will future-proof the company, standing it in good stead for decades to come.
The pillars that define sustainability in business
Meanwhile, the Paris Agreement of 2015 calls for global warming to be limited to a maximum of 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels by 2050, a requirement that implies a significant effort across the economy, while the United Nations has set out 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
What does sustainability means for business?
But what does sustainability means for business? Sustainability has become a business imperative and it means that companies need to avoid any negative environmental impact. There are many different ways for a business to become sustainable: choosing clean green energy, eliminating carbon emissions, using sustainable materials, and adopting sustainable travel policies.
