The Climate Champions invite you to the launch of their 2022 Criteria Consultation Process.
The UN High Level Climate Champions are spearheading the race to a cleaner, safer, healthier and more resilient world. Through our campaigns, Race to Resilience and Race to Zero, we are elevating ambition and mobilizing credible climate action among cities, regions, businesses and investors.
Here’s how to raise ambition and create systemic change that takes us to a zero carbon world.
“Celebrating resilience is glossing over the deep harm and repetitive trauma these communities are experiencing”
“The opportunities for adapting, while shifting our economy to be prosperous, sustainable and equitable, are plenty – we just have to have the will and the courage to seize these opportunities” – Camille Manning Broome, President and CEO of the Center for Planning Excellence (CPEX) explains why a happy ending for Louisiana is possible.
When companies wake up to the dangers of being the last to leave the fossil fuel economy and instead see the competitive advantages of a quick transition, they will become accelerators for change, explains Svante Axelsson, national coordinator of Fossil Free Sweden.
The US healthcare system is responsible for 8.5% of the country’s total greenhouse gas emissions. This year, despite the challenges of COVID19, one of the largest health systems pledged to become carbon negative by 2030.
Cascading benefits: How today’s system of climate solutions can help bring about a regenerative future for all
To get everyone onboard, it is time we stop focusing so much on the cascade of destruction that climate change may bring, and start talking about something else: the cascading benefits that climate solutions can bring to human and planetary wellbeing, argues Chad Frischmann, Senior Director, Drawdown Solutions, Project Drawdown.
“A resilient and net zero world is not possible unless the ocean and its biodiversity are protected”
We need a new generation of financial backers from institutional investors to family offices, and from banks to insurers to put capital to work in the ocean, write Chip Cunliffe and Karen Sack, Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance.
2030, nearly 40% of the world’s population will live in vulnerable housing. Disasters are increasing in frequency due to the impacts of climate change, and those living in lower income countries feel the consequences of climate change the greatest. CEO of Build Change, Elizabeth Hausler’s letter to world leaders.
Gender equality is central to the SDGs. Here’s how can we address the gender disparity in climate entrepreneurship.
