The Business End of Climate Change

28th June 2016

In the first edition of this study, researchers look at five initiatives that companies have joined to limit climate change: Science Based Targets, EP100, RE100, Zero Deforestation and the Low Carbon Technology Partnership initiative (LCTPi).

The report estimates how big the business determined contribution could be by 2030 using these five initiatives. That’s meant looking at what would happen if these five initiatives achieved their most ambitious plans for signing up companies to reduce emissions.

The researchers have also estimated what the impact on reducing emissions would be if all relevant companies that could join the initiatives actually signed up. And finally, the report assesses the overlap in impact across the analysed initiatives.
