Since the UN Climate Action Summit in September, and the release of the latest IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report on the ocean and cryosphere in a changing climate, we’ve been reading up on climate science. We’ve been trying to understand how we, as individuals, as a company, and as an industry, can play a bigger part in leading the change that is required. Worldwide, protests against government inaction on climate change have been broadcast across all mainstream media. The latest scientific knowledge has been assessed and there is consensus that Earth’s climate has changed over the last hundred years, and that the main cause is greenhouse emissions from human activities, especially from burning fossil fuels such as coal and oil. The atmosphere and oceans have warmed, sea levels have risen, and glaciers and ice sheets have decreased in size. Now, countries are expected to strongly commit to cutting greenhouse gas emissions, and transition to green economies to mitigate the effects. Businesses are stepping up too and aligning themselves with the science. In pledges to increase renewable energy capacity, over 80 countries have joined the International Solar Alliance.
