What's at stake

Smart use of non-renewable raw materials and energy sources is an absolute must. Protecting the climate is a prerequisite for the preservation of our basic necessities of life. Throughout the world, the consumption of resources must be reduced in absolute terms and the efficiency of those resources enhanced. The ecological Footprint of countries may not broaden further. Resources that take the form of biocapacity must be maintained and increased further. Economic systems must be weaned of their carbon-dependency and material-flow loops need to be closed.

Why does it matter

Global Challenges

  • Increased greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere

  • A reduced quality of life as well as health hazards due to local air pollution

  • Increasing economic costs as a result of environmental pollution and the effects of climate change

  • A lack of capital for energy transition and innovation in the area of new materials, etc

  • A shortage of resources

  • Losses and hazards associated with landfills and the burning of waste

Global Goals

  • Reduced consumption of resources (absolute)

  • Increased resource efficiency (relative) through the recycling of valuable raw materials from waste

  • A reduced ecological Footprint and an increase in biocapacity (in keeping with the Global Footprint)

  • Reduced “carbon-intensity”, i.e. lower greenhouse gas emissions

  • Increased innovation in the area of cleantech

  • Production and distribution of renewable energies

  • An understanding of the financial consequences of climate change.

Why does it matter

Climate change creates numerous ecological and social challenges. Economies and market participants will have to deal with them in the near future. Governments are facing increasing public pressure to fight climate change. They are increasingly acting forcefully. Companies that have implemented mitigation measures in their business processes will enjoy a competitive advantage when new legislation is put in place. The same is true for investors’ portfolios. Many industries will have to reduce their emissions in the future. High necessity for improvement translates to higher financial risks on a company level. Risks that affect profitability, solvency and stock prices.
