As I write this, my wife Linda and I are heading home after a two-week adventure cruise here in Antarctica. It’s always been a bucket-list item for me to touch the seventh continent. However, as I think back to the planning stages of this trip a year ago, I admit I felt a sense of urgency. While I’m an optimist on all matters – including the potential for technology to help reverse climate change – I worried that in my lifetime this special place might never be the same. So we decided we should embark on this trip sooner versus later.
To avoid the worst climate impacts, global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions will need to drop by half in the next 10 years and stay the course to a 2050 net-zero emissions horizon. Companies are being tasked to realign their strategies and operations in-line with these tightened goals. But what does that mean in practice? How can businesses realign business models without impacting current success?
Reserve your seat at our 2020 webinar and hear from Novo Nordisk, Schneider Electric and WWF on their net-zero journey.

Around the world, there are important conversations going on regarding carbon emissions. Countries, companies and communities are all looking for solutions that move us toward a lower-carbon future.
As energy providers, we have an important role to play, and I’m pleased that utilities in the United States have already made solid progress on carbon emissions. At Duke Energy, we reduced our carbon emissions 31 percent since 2005, which meets or exceeds the standards of the former Clean Power Plan and the 2025 U.S. commitment to the Paris Agreement.
