Leading companies are going all in and seizing the opportunity of climate action.

Through its partners and collaborators, We Mean Business Coalition brings together the best-in-class climate action initiatives. Hundreds of companies are now harnessing them to align with the 1.5°C pathway.

We are in the midst of an escalating climate crisis. Leading businesses are responding with ambition, delivering action, bringing about lasting change with advocacy and demonstrating accountability.

Ambition

.

Climate ambition is a commitment to shape the future. It represents a positive vision including business outcomes, better jobs and greater environmental protection. Ambition guides strategy, motivates employees, informs investors and customers.

Action

.

After setting out bold ambition, business needs to deliver on it. This is a process of innovation and change that, done right, can unlock business transformation and opportunities. It can deliver new competitive advantage that will grow as the economy decarbonizes.

Advocacy

.

To accelerate the transition, governments need to deliver clear, consistent and bold policy frameworks. For this to happen, corporate climate leaders must step into the arena of public discussion and political debate, and – together with like-minded allies – clearly and confidently make the case for policy ambition.

Accountability

.

To build trust and demonstrate progress to key stakeholders, companies need to clearly and consistently report and disclose climate-related information. This process can help uncover risks and opportunities, to better inform strategy and drive further progress.

THE ESCALATING CLIMATE CRISIS REQUIRES BUSINESS ACTION LIKE NEVER BEFORE. WE NEED CLIMATE LEADERSHIP NOW.

All companies need to align with the 1.5°C pathway and target net-zero by 2050 at the latest. To help achieve these this, companies can accelerate climate action through key initiatives across the following systems.
