The climate is changing – and the case for business taking a leading role in defining how we address it is in beta test around the world. As organizations of various sizes grapple with understanding carbon – and their footprint – a set of carbon metrics and financial instruments are emerging.
The Paris Agreement represented a turning point for the world. But what remains in question is how we’re going to get the financing tools and funds required to return a changing climate to a planet fit for life. As the need to respond becomes increasingly urgent, carbon accounting and financing methodologies (green bonds, carbon markets, internal pricing, etc.) will be crucial in mastering climatic risk and turning risks into business opportunities – and the need for us to become better storytellers on an issue that is wonky and logical but lacks the magic of sociology and behavioral science.
For this discussion during Climate Week NYC 2017, we’re bringing a cross-sector group of industry practitioners for a conversation on the world of carbon accounting and financing – and provoking a debate at the heart of this: Can business help take back our climate to be fit for life again? And how?
