“A net zero world is within reach. Getting there will take innovation, hard work, collaboration and bold thinking but the benefits will be immense. The business community has a responsibility to act and we are determined to play our part, not just in our own operations and supply chain, but also in the way we advise and support our clients to create a sustainable world for future generations.”
We are seeing the impacts of climate change all around us. The devastation caused in many places by the most severe flooding, the most sustained heatwaves and longest droughts experienced in recent history - these are now the stories in our daily news.
That devastation is severely disrupting lives, livelihoods and economies. Governments, businesses and societies need to better understand the risks that we are facing, and need to adapt to the change we know is already unavoidable. But those risks also underline the urgent need for us to work together to accelerate the decarbonisation of our economies in order to reach net zero by 2050 and avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
At PwC, we are working to decarbonise our business and adapt to the impacts of climate change. This means setting clear targets, creating practical plans that achieve real results, and collaborating with other organisations in the broader ecosystem to support the net zero transition.
