Climate Change

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”).

NBS helps businesses on this journey. Our resources and community provide guidance on preparing for a different world – and shaping the world that we seek.
