Despite the uncertain times in which we’re operating, 2021 remains a critical year to keep up momentum around climate action within the private sector. It represents a significant opportunity for business, with the potential benefits of timely and effective climate action including, improved operational efficiency, customer loyalty, talent retention, capital market attractiveness and resilience.
Through the Goal 13 Impact Platform, we are capturing cross-sector insights into business climate transition. The objective of the initiative is to build an open repository of corporate climate actions and facilitate learning and collaboration in the run up to COP26, and beyond. The platform was launched in partnership between six organisations: the CBI, A4S, Chapter Zero, the Met Office, Dell Technologies and Deloitte. Each partner contributes value in kind, with the platform being free to access.
Information is gathered via structured interviews with organisations who want to tell their climate story; there is no constraint on size, sector or geography. Read our emerging findings report for an overview of the platform, the questions we ask and the insights to date.
We have reached out to around 2,000 organisations and carried out over 250 interviews globally.
Additionally, we're encouraging all contributors to get organisations within their supply or value chain onto the platform, typically as a complement to their ongoing engagement with their supply chain on climate action. We would be happy to follow-up with your supply or value chains and encourage them to participate. This will hopefully assist your organisation to achieve climate objectives, especially within scope three emissions.
