Innovating toward the Net-Zero Economy. (8-9/12/2019)
Following the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit in New York last week, ambitions are high, but further actions are needed in terms of the climate change solutions. Now, global attention is shifting to Chile and the 25th Conference of the Parties in Santiago.
With a number of significant global announcements upping the ante for clean economy investment, this year's World Climate Summit - The Investment COP is poised to have major impact.
As WCS2019 Global Partners Capgemini Invent reflect in their Leadership Article below, technology and machine-aided insights will also play a key role in meeting international climate goals. Innovative climate change solutions will be a key topic at this year's World Climate Summit, as well as the partnerships and investments needed to scale them.
World Climate Summit - The Investment COP offers a platform for exactly the kind of collaboration needed to reach global climate goals.
The clock is ticking against the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) target to achieve a 45 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 – and net zero emissions by the middle of this century. That first milestone is now only 11 years away and the World Climate Summit in Santiago de Chile has 2030 firmly in its sights.
The scale of the transformation required to tackle climate change across every business sector is significant. At Capgemini, we believe that delivering the needed reductions in carbon emissions must go well beyond incremental efficiency gains and will involve radical business transformation. Achieving this will demand new thinking, new strategies, innovative new business models and the adoption of new technologies, interlinked platforms and partner ecosystems. This is feasible, but there is no time to waste.
Within Capgemini, having reached our 2020 carbon reduction target two years early, we are now focused on delivering our 2030 Science Based Target as soon as possible. We’ve also set an ambitious target to change the mindset of the business by helping our clients save 10 million tonnes of carbon by 2030.
Our Capgemini Invent business has already embraced the client challenge and is helping organizations design, build and deliver their low carbon strategies...
