Ecofin is a sustainable investing specialist dedicated to climate action, social impact and water.
First, climate action is the drive to reduce emissions, and includes both the energy transition and waste transition. This means conventional categories such as solar, wind, hydro and batteries, in addition to the electrification of transport, energy efficiency, waste-to-value (recycling) and waste-to-energy (cleaner fuels such as renewable natural gas).
The previous posts in this series discussed energy audits and purchasing renewable energy – two very useful and important tools when creating a proper decarbonization strategy. A third tool in the decarbonization toolbox is the purchase of carbon offsets.
June 3, 2021 /3BL Media/ - Sixty percent of Fortune 500 companies have set a climate or energy-related goal, yet they vary dramatically in terms of ambition and are not happening at the speed or scale needed to align with what the science requires, according to a new World Wildlife Fund (WWF) report. “More and more companies are setting voluntary climate goals and increasing their climate ambition, however it’s still not enough to stave off the worst impacts of climate change,” said Marcene Mitchell, WWF’s senior vice president for climate change.

In 2020, Green Mountain Energy customers prevented more than 8.4 billion pounds of carbon dioxide, the equivalent of planting nearly 1 million trees!
HOUSTON, April 22, 2021 /3BL Media/ – Earth Day is a time when many people come face-to-face to confront several thought-provoking questions around global warming – How will it affect us? What role do we play? What actions can we take to mitigate the threat? The solutions for climate stability are complex, but when it comes down to our personal choices to purposely reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, it can be simple.

The momentum of many industries advancing towards net-carbon neutrality is unstoppable. The focus on clean energy technologies today is led by the global drive for decarbonization, underpinned by the UN Paris Climate Agreement, where 189 countries committed to limit global warming to 1.5 to 2 degrees Celsius from pre-industrial levels through economic and social adaptation.
