The guidance – created in partnership with We Mean Business Coalition and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) – is aimed at companies looking to establish themselves as corporate climate leaders, covering actions to cut emissions from across their value chains in line with science, better protect, manage and restore nature within company value chains as a part of their emissions targets and invest now in protecting and restoring nature beyond their value chains.
The 1.5°C Business Playbook provides a framework for all companies to reach net-zero emissions rapidly through the adoption of an exponential trajectory of at least halving their greenhouse gas emissions every decade to approach net zero by 2050, and integrating climate in their business strategy. The Playbook focuses on simplicity and speed, is anchored in the latest science and is endorsed by innovative, disruptive and transformative businesses, together representing +900 BN USD in revenue. The latest version was released in September 2023 (v.3.0)
The Exponential Roadmap for Natural Climate Solutions by Conservation International in partnership with WWF, PIK and Exponential Roadmap Initiative, outlines a path to reach net zero emissions from the land sector by 2030 through natural climate solutions. The report is a critical step toward providing communities with resources to support land stewardship, countries with the knowledge to identify and activate the climate potential of their domains, and companies and financiers with clear paths to invest in climate solutions. The roadmap establishes a new “Carbon Law for Nature” – a benchmark for emissions from the land sector each year.
V. 1.5.1. is the the third iteration of the Exponential Roadmap, the science-based cross-sector collaboration which highlights 36 solutions with exponential scaling potential to halve global greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Scaling of solutions comes from sharp policy, from climate leadership by companies and cities and from a finance and technology shift towards green solutions with exponential potential.
This report by Global Challenges Foundation in partnership with Exponential Roadmap Initiative, Climate Governance Comissions and Stimson aims to highlight how enhancement or reform of the basic global governance architecture could contribute to better leadership and more effective and purposeful climate action. Despite the success represented by the adoption of the 2015 Paris Agreement and its fundamental importance in enshrining a shared legal framework, there is still a striking deficit in adequate governance architecture or mechanisms at the global level – and in many, or most, parts of the world also at the national and regional levels – that could reliably promote implementation of strong and expedient climate policies for the achievement of the necessary collective climate targets.
V. 1.5 is the second iteration of the Exponential Roadmap, whicih presents the 36 most viable solutions to halve greenhouse gas emissions globally by 2030. The solutions – ranging from solar and wind to electric bikes, commercial shipping and reduced red meat consumption – have the potential to scale rapidly.
Meeting the 1.5°C Climate Ambition is part of the second Exponential Roadmap. Together they articulate how far we have come and how far we need to go. Step by step, they chart how the world can move from incremental to exponential action – doubling the number of companies, cities and countries acting on climate, then doubling again and again.
12 in 12 highlights 12 ways that existing digital technology – search, e-commerce and social media – can help the world halve emissions in 12 years, based on the Exponential Climate Action Roadmap report launched at the recent Global Climate Action Summit.
