Where to focus your climate actions

Reaching net zero targets requires reinvention across an ecosystem including government, businesses, consumers and communities.

The urgency of the climate threat means all companies should be considering how to transition to a sustainable business model - not only to reduce carbon emissions but because it makes business sense. Whether it’s creating immediate cost efficiencies through reducing energy demand or investing in climate technologies for longer term benefit, the opportunities to unlock potential value are numerous.

Navigating regulatory complexity and harnessing value from environmental information is becoming increasingly crucial for businesses. The EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is just one example of a new regulation, requiring some 50,000 businesses to report more about their sustainability performance than ever before. Transforming reporting functions to align with strategic ambition, whilst demonstrating clear accountability for progress on your transformation toward a more sustainable business, creates value.

As all parts of the world face increasing climatic events and natural disasters, businesses need to plan ahead for the unavoidable physical impacts of climate change. According to the PwC 2024 CEO Survey, only 38% of CEOs are incorporating climate risk into financial planning. As well as building climate resilience for the future, planning for physical climate risk can be a catalyst for companies’ innovation and growth.

Climate action powered by technology

Technology will not only play a critical role in enabling businesses to reach net zero targets, but also in powering sustainable transformation. As shareholders and stakeholders put increasing emphasis on sustainability, businesses need to adapt their approach to create value and build resilience in a rapidly changing world. From generative AI to climate tech, investment in the right sustainable technology can unlock value and new opportunities and will underpin the transformation of businesses for the future.
