SDG Spotlight: How businesses can achieve Goal 13 – Climate Action

Last updated: 25th April 2019

This brand-new edie report maps out exactly how the business community can collectively achieve Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 - Climate Action - within the next decade.

It is well-known that efforts to limit global warming to well below two degrees (2C), as envisioned by the Paris Agreement, require rapid and wholescale transformation to curb greenhouse gas emissions. But the fact remains that this transformation is not happening fast enough, and we have not yet reached the much-needed ‘climate turning point’.

In recent years, the UN SDGs – particularly Goal 13: Climate Action – have provided a new foundation upon which businesses, public organisations and governments can drive positive change. So, with just 10 years remaining to achieve the Goals, how well are businesses progressing towards achieving them?

Is Goal 13 and its five subtargets within reach? And, crucially, what steps should energy and sustainability professionals be taking now to ensure all of those targets are met?

This edie report, sponsored by renewable energy company Ørsted, sets out exactly how the business community can collectively achieve SDG 13 within the next 10 years. The report combines an array of real-life case studies with expert viewpoints, key facts and stats, and look at how Goal 13 aligns with other SDGs – providing readers with the insight, inspiration and motivation needed to achieve what is arguably the most critical Goal of them all.
