An interview with George Favaloro, South Pole’s new Head of Climate Solutions, North America.
Le dernier rapport du GIEC est sans appel : nous devons agir maintenant pour stopper la hausse des émissions dans l'atmosphère. Alors que les politiques tardent à s’organiser, les entreprises doivent prendre des mesures immédiates pour contribuer à la protection du climat et anticiper les risques associés, afin d’assurer la pérennité de leur activité.
Jeffrey Castellas, South Pole’s Sourcing Manager, talks through the opportunities in the Australian market to unlock nature-based carbon projects at scale.
Recent research has highlighted the scale of the financed emissions challenge and the need for financial institutions to use their investment influence to drive decarbonisation efforts. Matt Sprague, Associate Director for Climate Strategies (Australia), explains the climate journey for financial institutions to understand and tackle their scope 3 emissions.
The Race to Zero requires the acceleration of cross-sector piloting, implementing and scaling-up innovations in key regulatory systems -- a step change from formulating stiff plans and strategies that conform to international developments, something that Thailand has excelled in in the past.
What is competitive sustainability? Put simply, it is a company’s ability to compete and succeed relative to peers as part of its transition to a sustainable economy. Achieving net-zero emissions is at the heart of it, a goal which requires a competitive emission reduction pathway.
At South Pole, we see a growing number of bold commitments to drive climate change through the supply chain. Where scope 1 and 2 were once the primary focus to reduce emissions, it's becoming clear that we will not be able to achieve the reductions we need unless organisations push hard to drive change throughout their value chains as well.
CCUS is an essential tool to meet climate goals, but the complex systems surrounding it require strong collaboration across sectors to reach its potential.
Permanent carbon removals will play a vital role in the ‘race to zero.’ But efforts to scale up technological carbon dioxide removals are facing systemic challenges. How can policymakers help scale carbon removal activities within and beyond Europe?
In 2020, the Irish government committed to lowering its greenhouse gas emissions by 7% per year to achieve Net Zero by 2050. To put that into perspective: the fastest rate of national emissions reduction achieved by an advanced economy was about 3% per year in the UK over the past decade. Ireland aims to more than double that.
