WHAT WE DOSUSTAINABILITY
Science-based targets, strategic advice and reporting
Bridging the emissions ‘gap’ of 12-14 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (Gt CO2e) by 2030 requires action from every sector of society. Businesses and organisations have an indispensable role to play, not only to bridge the cultural, emissions and policy gaps that exist but also to help catalyse society’s transition to a low-carbon economy.
Science-Based Targets initiative
The new international norm for those organisations serious about making a measurable difference, and one that’s validated by science. Make a pledge out to 2030 and join the ~500 other global organisations taking Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) action. We help your organisation set its science-based target in order to get sign-off internally and externally.
Strategic Sustainability Advice
Get the business and moral case for moving your organisation from the status-quo to the future-proofed. It’s corny but it’s true: the longest journey starts with a single step. Consult Climate helps you at any stage along that journey. We conduct peer reviews and materiality assessments to benchmark you against your competitors. We devise sustainability strategies and targets that are meaningful to your organisation and its stakeholders.
Corporate Disclosure (Reporting)
The old adage ‘we manage what we measure’ helps to highlight the opposite: we don’t manage what we don’t measure. We’ll assess your carbon footprint from your global operations across the full range of emissions Scopes, to help you submit to reporting frameworks such as the CDP, GRI and the SECR. We can also define a strategy for contribution to the SDGs and how to communicate your progress towards them. Once we know your environmental impacts, we can get to work, together, to reduce them.
"Driving ambitious corporate climate action"
Science tells it like it is. That's why the Paris Agreement 2015 put science at its core with respect to assessing and gauging progress against national targets to tackle climate change.
Yet the hallmarks of the new climate change game demand that concerted action occurs not only at the national and sub-national level, but also at the business, organisation and civil society level.
A partnership between CDP, UN Global Compact, WRI and WWF, the Science Based Targets initiative gives methodological rigour to your organisations public commitment to decarbonisation. By setting a long-term target for for up to 15 years, SBTi also delivers financial, reputational and strategic benefits to your organisation.
Doing the right thing by climate change has its advantages.
The Emissions and Governance Gaps
In time, November 8, 2016 will not be remembered for its politics (Donald Trump’s election victory). It will instead be remembered as the day the World Meteorological Organization first demonstrated that global temperatures surpassed 1°C above earth’s pre-industrial average for an entire year…
