Bold Action for Our Climate and Environment

From the air we breathe to the food we eat, nature and well-functioning ecosystems bring critical services that are essential for human livelihood and well-being.

我们为全世界上更多的人提供的食物、能源和其他资源,都是以未来为代价。气候变化、不可再生的土地和自然资源、污染和其他因素对我们赖以生存的关键生态系统构成了重大威胁。

采取行动是一个商业问题。企业将可持续发展和战略融入他们的业务模式和治理流程以应对气候变化,这将带来可持续的竞争优势。

应对气候变化中蕴藏的机遇

对抗全球气候变化是当今最为紧迫的挑战之一。不论行业和地区,是时候应当优先考虑并主动投资于限制全球变暖并致力于让企业在低碳世界中取得成功的转型措施。有了应对气候变化的创新方式,企业可以确保同时满足地球和人类的需求。

和工业化时期以前相比,全球温度已经升高了 1°C,这个变化和温室气体排放增多有关。即使变暖被限制在 2°C 内——巴黎气候协议的规定——也很可引发越来越多的破坏性事件,例如火灾、旱灾、飓风、海平面上升和被迫迁移。当前的政策和公约还不足以让世界重回正轨。我们现在就要采取行动,减少排放量并确保我们在接下来的十年持续减少排放。

要实现这样的目标并不容易,好消息是,我们可以利用现有技术实现大多数必要的转型,在能源、工业、交通、土地使用和基础设施领域实行低碳经济——这在经济上是可行的。

可持续发展势在必行

气候变化带来了许多其他的环境挑战。例如,我们的海洋面临着升温、酸化的威胁,风暴和涨潮也带来了越来越多的破坏。还有对资源的过度开发,例如鱼类资源;自然栖息地的破坏,包括珊瑚礁、海草床和红树林;以及来自污染和一次性塑料的破坏。

企业领导者越来越意识到回收、再利用资源战略的商业及社会价值,并朝着循环型经济的方向前进。此方式让人反思了“获取—制造—销毁”的传统经济模式并通过设计构想出了新型经济模式。

我们必须从全新的角度审视商业和环境之间的关系。那些采用全新思维角度的企业将在应对气候变化与生态系统恶化的过程中处于最有利位置,同时抓住有价值的新商机。
