With a tumultuous year coming to an end, what opportunities could companies grasp as we move towards a green and inclusive recovery in a post-COVID, climate-resilient world? This month kicked off the Race to Zero global campaign’s November Dialogues, bringing together leaders from across business, investor, governments and civil society to discuss how to build momentum towards a decarbonised economy ahead of COP26 in 2021.
Meanwhile, with the Science-based Targets Initiative (SBTi) welcoming its 1000th company to commit to setting a science-based target (SBT), we are entering a ‘new normal’ of ambitious corporate environmental action.
The CDP Partnerships team is pleased to work with our accredited solutions providers, including several newly accredited SBT providers, to help companies to position themselves at the forefront of a transition to a thriving, climate-resilient economy.
