BUSINESS STRATEGY: CLIMATE
The message from climate scientists is stark. Recent reports from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change say it is now virtually certain that human activity is warming the planet and that we are on course for dangerous changes in temperature unless we take drastic action.
That means cutting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40 to 70 per cent from 2010 levels by mid-century and to virtually nothing by 2100 if we are to keep temperature increases to manageable levels of 2C. At current rates, we are on track to increase temperatures by 3.7C to 4.8C by 2100. And the more GHGs we emit now, the more difficult and expensive it becomes to rectify the problem later.
