South Pole has launched a new 2ºC Readiness Programme that will help corporates align their emission reduction targets with the goals of the Paris climate agreement and prepare to disclose in line with the Taskforce on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures ( TCFD).
The 2ºC Readiness Programme will help future-proof participating businesses and ensure they demonstrate climate leadership and deliver the best value emissions reductions and adaptation actions.
The new initiative does so by integrating four elements: Science Based Targets, climate risk and opportunity scenario analysis, emissions reduction strategy and adaptation plan.
The Programme was developed by South Pole after a survey on TCFD drivers and preparedness amongst corporates revealed gaps in corporate planning for risk management and reporting in key areas of governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets.
'2ºC Readiness' refers to the central goal of the Paris Agreement; to limit the global temperature rise to well below 2ºC above pre-industrial levels in order to avoid catastrophic climate change.

TCFD Preparedness white paper or read more about the survey results. For more detailed information on the new 2ºC Readiness Programme, click here.
South Pole is also hosting a designated webinar on 12 July at 3pm BST to introduce the new 2ºC Readiness Programme and illustrate how individual companies are already taking action. For more information and to register, please click here.
