BETHESDA, Md., February 17, 2021 /3BL Media/ -- Today, Enviva, a leading global renewable energy company specializing in sustainable wood bioenergy, announced its goal of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from its operations by 2030. This commitment to climate action reinforces Enviva’s core purpose to displace coal, grow more trees, and fight climate change. It sets forth an ambitious plan for eliminating GHG emissions from its operations in keeping with international climate goals, including the Paris Agreement’s goal to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
Science-based targets (SBTs) provide us with an evidence-based goal-setting framework for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and fueling business transformation. In other words, they place very specific destination points on the map.
Generating Business Value with GHG Management - Part II
In my recent article, Generating Business Value with GHG Management- Part I (January 25), I explored five ways for companies to derive business value from GHG management strategies: 1) boosting sales through climate-friendly product marketing; 2) enhancing brand value and recognition; 3) earning extra revenue through carbon credits; 4) improving opportunities for funding; and 5) anticipating supply chain disruptions.
The signing ceremony of the Paris Agreement on April 22 shows that the world is demanding aggressive action on climate change mitigation. Companies are facing pressure from customers, governments, investors, and other stakeholders to find climate change solutions. Your company can anticipate and respond to these pressures by developing a climate action plan. Identify opportunities such as improving supply chain efficiency and reducing fuel costs, distinguish your corporate brand from competitors, and help reach new customers.
One year after Superstorm Sandy, 20 major U.S. businesses demand action
BOSTON, October 29, 2013 /3BL Media/ – One year after Superstorm Sandy devastated the East Coast, major U. S. companies including Starbucks, Unilever and Mars, Inc. have called on President Obama and the White House to follow through on climate change preparedness efforts outlined in the Climate Action Plan announced by the President on June 25th.
During his speech on climate change earlier this week, President Obama made it clear that the days of sitting idle while the Earth gets warmer are over.
The time to act on climate change, said President Obama, is now. One way to combat the rising levels of greenhouse emissions is by using energy more efficiently. At General Motors, we are doing just that.
