The "Net-zero foundations for financial institutions" paper is the preamble to the SBTi’s upcoming standard of the same name. South Pole knows the transformational role that financial institutions can play in accelerating the climate transition. That’s why we’ve put together our digest of what you need to know.
As net zero strategy development and TCFD reporting become increasingly popular, companies are looking to understand how both concepts interact to inform a concise climate strategy and to decide on which steps to take first.
Reaching net zero is no longer just corporate jargon: it’s a priority that could ensure the survival of your organisation and its ability to get ahead of tightening regulation on carbon emissions. But knowing where to start is often the hardest part. So, start here.
There can be no net zero without carbon dioxide removal (CDR) from the atmosphere. But the scale of this challenge is colossal. Creating an enabling environment and framework for upscaling durable removals is urgently needed. Here we explore how this sector can be designed to be fit-for-purpose.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC)’s 6th assessment report is a dense digest of the climate solutions that must be put into action to stop runaway climate change. Here are the main takeaways we believe all financial sector leaders should know.
This brief interview with South Pole’s new Head of Public Affairs explores how carbon markets will evolve in the next 3-5 years and how South Pole will stay at the forefront of the transition.
We must urgently scale removals – but we must do so without compromising quality and environmental integrity. The four proposed mindsets can be used to identify problems and opportunities as stakeholders design the necessary frameworks for developing these important climate technologies.
The South Pole plastics team had a conversation with Corona’s Global VP, Felipe Ambra, about the history of their plastics effort and where they expect the programme to go in the future. This Q&A summarises that conversation and will give you a good idea of how Corona, with South Pole’s help, achieved success and continues to improve its performance.
We need a ‘mindset shift’ in our approach to carbon removals to make sure they are developed in a way that upholds social and environmental integrity, but also encourages innovation and exponential growth. Experts Christiaan Gevers Deynoot and Dylan Marks propose four new ways to challenge our existing views when it comes to evaluating and developing the potential of carbon removals.
Blockchain technology has enormous potential for climate action. This is only the case, however, when the right safeguards are in place to ensure environmental integrity. Web3 applications can be part of the climate solution, but they have to be designed and applied in the right way, says Ingo Puhl, co-founder of South Pole.
