Jetting to Climate Neutrality: Opportunities for Business Aviation

Private aviation may be an extravagance to many, but it remains a robust and important economic sector. Not only in normal times, but also in crisis situations. In the context of COVID-19, business aviation has stepped in to facilitate repatriation efforts, distribute medical supplies and transport health workers to remote areas.

Youth Climate Action

2020 was to be the Year of Climate Action. How are we doing?

A year plagued by the coronavirus pandemic might not seem like a good year for business, but when it comes to the voluntary carbon market, encouraging signs of demand from a diverse range of sectors are persisting.

South Pole welcomes ICAO decision on CORSIA eligibility

South Pole welcomes ICAO decision on CORSIA eligibility

ICAO has announced their list of CORSIA-eligible carbon projects. South Pole is well positioned to continue building on our already strong portfolio of projects that minimize the risk of CORSIA non-eligibility.

Physical climate risks, like extreme weather, pose an increasing threat to business.

Climate risks, carbon pricing & climate change: Preparing the resources sector for the "new normal"

Climate change is affecting the global economy and the way we do business. In the face of an emerging "new normal", we explain how the mining and resources sector faces unique challenges from climate change – and how South Pole's experts are working with companies in the sector to manage these climate-related risks.

Airline Carbon Credit

Why Airlines Need Carbon Credits

Airlines are major contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions. Barring a technological shift to electric planes, airlines will continue to burn jet fuel for the foreseeable future, making up something on the order of 2.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Improved operational efficiencies and the introduction of advanced biofuels will reduce emissions, but at the end of the day, carbon credits will continue to be needed to mitigate their overall effect on our global climate.

Jeff at COP25

Will the "missing piece" of the Paris Agreement be decided this week?

One component of the Paris Agreement on climate change that has remained somewhat of a black hole is Article 6, which outlines countries cooperating with one another on their own volition to help achieve emissions-reduction targets.

Why clean technology will give us the edge we need to solve the climate crisis

Why clean technology will give us the edge we need to solve the climate crisis

The move to net zero must happen as quickly as possible – and it must happen at scale. To achieve real, quantifiable impacts we must explore all possible policy solutions. While carbon pricing and sustainable finance are critical tools for solving the climate crisis, Martin Stadelmann argues that it is clean technology that will help us hit the bullseye on our net-zero target.

enhance ambition for climate action

Practice makes perfect: a project developer's view on Article 6 pilots

Article 6 unlocks a multitude of opportunities for countries to work together and enhance ambition for climate action under the Paris Agreement. Since the adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2016, Article 6 negotiators at the UNFCCC have faced tremendous pressure to design an Article 6 rulebook that will create the most environmentally robust and cost-effective outcomes. Their job is not an easy one. South Pole’s response to the challenge facing Article 6 negotiators is to show how these policy concepts could be applied in a real world policy setting. This is why we have teamed up with the Climate Cent Foundation and the Swedish Energy Agency to develop two Article 6 pilots in Thailand and Colombia respectively.

Australian climate policy discussions

Australian climate policy discussions in Canada: networking with the Montreal responsible investment community

Montreal is one of the responsible investment hubs of the planet, with a thriving investment community. With over 60 PRI signatories and hundreds of people, Quebec is probably one of the most active regions for the Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI) around the globe. During a recent trip to Canada, I had the chance to present at an informal gathering of experts of Montreal’s responsible investment community. I was asked to present a glimpse into Australian climate policy.

Future Climate Leaders

A just climate transition is the name of the game in Sweden

A survey found that Climate and Environment were the most important topics amongst Swedish voters when deciding on political party in the EU election last month. In fact, flying and meat consumption amongst Swedes decreased during 2017 and 2018 for the first time in a South Pole invited key sustainability players to the Climate Leaders Forum in Stockholm on 28th May to explore how businesses should respond to growing public demand for companies to take climate responsibility.
