The world is facing one of its biggest challenges yet: We have 10 years to halve global greenhouse gas emissions and avoid global warming of above 1.5°C. Beyond this point of warming, the more devastating impacts of climate change become irreversible. Put simply, this gives us just over two business cycles to transform every sector of the global economy.
However, the good news is organisations around the world are leaping into action. Just under 300 global companies have now made pledges to be net zero by 2050. But there is still so much more to do. We need to accelerate the transformation of businesses and industries to achieve a socially just net zero future. This PwC and Microsoft report shares a ‘blueprint’ to help guide organisations as they move from ambition to action. It outlines the key building blocks for business transformation needed to deliver net zero, providing a coherent, holistic, and good practice framework that businesses can use to inform and guide how to embed net zero into a company’s strategy and operating model. It sets out how to translate a net zero commitment into your business transformation to build an organisation fit for the future. It is sector and size agnostic and contains case studies from Transform to Net Zero founding members to bring the building blocks to life.
Microsoft plans to be carbon negative by 2030 and to remove its historic scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions by 2050. It will achieve the latter part of this target through a strategy that goes beyond achieving carbon neutrality through avoided emissions, to focus on carbon removals.
