“Companies can no longer afford to mess around in this domain. And things like this UN high-level expert panel on net zero emissions by non-state actors and the kinds of guidance that they’re giving around setting meaningful targets is going to be more and more critical if you are wanting to secure investment going forward.”
Inside the Episode
- “Now all of a sudden there’s new languages, which has started to creep in around every fraction of a degree counts. You know, really what what they’re saying there is, you know, every fraction of a degree below two degrees centigrade counts. And yes, that’s undoubtedly, uh, correct. However, the reality is, is that at 1.5, you know, beyond 1.5 degrees, of warming then what we find is that four or five key global tipping points of climate tipping points move from being possible to likely”
- “And I think what comes out of this COP clearly is there’s an end to greenwashing. If a company seeks to, uh, do work on climate, it should be really absolute emission reduction target in 2050, 2030. If you use compensation to get to zero, use high quality offsets.”
- “Mitigation is actually from three aspects. It’s about reducing destroying nature, but also implementing and improving our nature and creating, creating more nature. But we can dive into that a bit deeper later.”
- “What most people don’t know is that why it’s so important to have the carbon market and the reprise agreement is because at 5% of all the revenues, they go into the adaptation fund, and so that’s very important also from that point. To get it done and get it in the, uh, in the, in the framework group agreement, which also could be a new angle to use also in the carbon market.”
