Demystifying Decarbonization: The Business/Climate Change Nexus

Demystifying Decarbonization: The Business/Climate Change Nexus

November 15, 2022

The impacts of human-caused global warming are worsening and accelerating. Climate change is a global problem requiring collective action and innovation, with many interconnected stakeholders and complex, competing interests. How can the private sector lead the decarbonization of the global economy? Sustainable business practices have historically come at a cost – challenging market competitiveness and profitability. As new science and data emerge on rapidly accelerating climate threats, future competitiveness will be dictated by business leaders who rapidly pivot to balance economic and environmental goals. Emerging technologies across all industries are making it possible for businesses to model for sustainability while maintaining, if not growing, market positioning. The private sector has a unique obligation, and opportunity, to rebuild the economy for a sustainable future.
