Can businesses achieve SDG 13 - Climate Action? Find out in edie's new report
edie has launched its latest SDG Spotlight report, looking at how businesses can transform to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) post-lockdown, with the latest focusing on Goal 13: Climate Action.
SDG Spotlight reports map out exactly how the business community can collectively achieve the SDGs through the scope of individual goals. In this latest report in the renewed series, edie explores how businesses can contribute to Goal 13 in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Featuring an exclusive foreword from The Climate Coalition’s campaigns director Clara Goldsmith, the report provides a snapshot of global progress towards SDG 13 so far and best-practice advice for businesses looking to advance climate action through net-zero strategies, supplier engagement and advocacy and lobbying.
Specifically, the report combines an array of real-life case studies with expert viewpoints, key facts and stats. There is also an analysis of how SDG 13 intersects with other Global Goals, inspiring businesses to avoid unintended negative consequences and generate positive outcomes across the sustainability agenda.
“The global community is at a turning point. Our best chance of building a resilient economy goes hand in hand with tackling climate change,” Goldsmith writes in the report. “In many ways, Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13: Climate Action is the goal that underpins the rest. To achieve all of the SDGs, we need a safe world for future generations, protected from the worst impacts of climate change. The time for urgent action is now.”
With less than 10 years to meet the SDGs, action is still not happening at the speed or scale required - despite a groundswell of ambition and action from organisations of all sectors and sizes. These reports are, therefore, designed to empower you with the insight, inspiration and motivation needed to achieve what are undeniably business-critical goals.
edie will publish more SDG Spotlight reports, focussing on different goals, in the coming months.
