Why businesses should be prioritising sustainability targets
As more robust plans come into play by governments across the globe to become net zero by 2050, Therese Gjerde, Senior Director Global Sustainability at World Kinect Energy Services discusses why businesses should be prioritising their own sustainability targets to support world-wide efforts to slow down global warming.
We are facing a critical carbon problem right now - already the planet’s temperature has risen by 1 degree centigrade and the targets set by The Paris Agreement [hyperlink] to keep the global temperature rise this century well below 2C above pre-industrial levels, is challenging to say the least.
Current efforts to curb emissions and slow global warming have fallen woefully short and if companies have the capacity and commitment to go above and beyond addressing their own emissions, they should be doing it right now.
However, everyone has a role to play and it’s important that companies implement their own meaningful measures. Seeking expert guidance to help implement these sustainability ambitions will ensure maximum impact and set you apart from the competition.
