The weather patterns on our planet are changing, influenced by human activities such as burning fossil fuels and wasteful industrial processes. The consequences threaten human health, ecosystems, and the economy – yet opportunities exist as well.
Many businesses are responding by seeking to:
- Understand how the climate is changing and specific relevant impacts
- Reduce or mitigate their contribution to climate change (actions sometimes called “Net Zero”)
- Adapt their business to gain resilience, recognizing that climate change will alter physical, social, and economic systems
- Restore ecological systems, moving from “less harm” to “more good” (sometimes called “regeneration”).
