Why business needs to accelerate climate adaptation, now
28 May 21
This week: Julia King, Baroness Brown of Cambridge, chair of the Carbon Trust and from the UK’s Committee on Climate Change, talks about what business should hope for from COP26. Strong policy measures are necessary for the acceleration to net zero, but companies need to be ready to adapt to changes that will come even within a 1.5C pathway. Baroness Brown was speaking at Innovation Forum’s Future of Climate Action conference.
Plus: Pina Gervassi, FSC’s climate director, discusses how visibility and transparency in supply chains can deliver on climate and deforestation targets. She gives insight into how rubber suppliers, for the apparel sector and others, are working hard to lower impacts. And she outlines how businesses – for example in the wine sector – can access value from ecosystem services.
