In 2017, experts identified six key milestones – across energy, transport, land use, industry, infrastructure, and finance – that mankind must hit by 2020 in order to get a grip on global warming once and for all. They called this the ‘climate turning point’.
While positive progress has been made towards many of these milestones, the reality is that action across the board remains broadly insufficient to reverse climate change and tackle key critical environmental and social sustainability issues. But all hope is not lost. In fact, there remains a huge, transformational opportunity for businesses to achieve a sustainable and profitable future, through a radical increase in ambition and relentless optimism.
