Corporate Climate Action: The Time to Act is Now

In a time where thousands of young (and slightly less young) people are following the lead of 17-year old Nobel nominee Greta Thunberg by marching the streets in cities all over the world, climate change might be higher on the societal agenda than ever before. Corporate climate action is definitely not a new thing – but today, even companies in traditionally less carbon-intensive sectors must also raise the bar committing to concrete targets to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to the goals in the Paris Agreement. In this article, we propose a straight-forward 5-step approach to start building a pragmatic climate approach.
Making the Energy Transition Happen.jpg

Renewable Energy Innovation on El Hierro

As part of their round-the-world sailing trip in search of sustainable solutions, the Sailors for Sustainability visited the Spanish island of El Hierro. Propelled by the northeast trade winds, the Sailors sail to the smallest of the seven main Canary Islands, which makes good use of the constant wind, too. Wind turbines generate a large part of the island’s electricity needs. Yet the Sailors come to see another element of the island’s energy system: the innovative way energy is stored to match supply and demand. How did the islanders manage to set a world-class example in renewable energy storage and what are the success factors?

Paying for Climate Change

Paying for Climate Change: Expensive Externalities

New York City is suing five major oil companies for their contribution to climate change. This new lawsuit highlights that the time for companies to pay for previously unaccounted externalities may come faster than expected. So it is increasingly important for companies to perform impact valuations in order to gain insights on their negative and positive externalities, and learn how to mitigate risks and leverage opportunities.
