This is the decade for climate action. Internal and external stakeholders demand action. How we choose to act in the next ten years will determine our foreseeable future.
Businesses hold a critical role for climate futures. The need for businesses to reduce their carbon footprint is now unquestioned, but how to achieve reductions in a credible way is neither clear nor easy once you've tackled the obvious energy culprits. Climate Positive Business lays out the path of business climate strategy, highlighting how your business must set goals, measure impact, and improve performance.
Greenhouse gas protocols can instruct you on the core accounting process that lies at the heart of climate strategy. At least as important to success are the details that protocols don't tell you: the sticking points; the areas of controversy, and the best practices.
Rooted in real experience and written in an entertaining and engaging style, this book provides you with the tips, tools, and techniques to tackle your company's carbon footprint, and it helps you do so in a way that is credible and appropriately ambitious to meet stakeholder expectations. The book will equip you with tools to think critically about GHG reduction, carbon offsets, and carbon removal, as well as help ensure we collectively implement real solutions to slow and eventually reverse the climate crisis. It includes lessons learned from real-world consulting projects and provides a plan of action for readers to implement.
A go-to book for business looking to understand, manage, and reduce their carbon footprint, it is an invaluable resource for sustainable business practitioners, consultants, and those aspiring to become climate champions.
