UN Scientific Report: No Climate Action Now Could Mean No ROI

UN Report
Actions on curbing fossil-fuel emissions have long been delayed, but is it too late now? In The New York Times article, "A Hotter Future Is Certain, Climate Panel Warns. But How Hot Is Up to Us," the UN Scientific Report suggests that even if countries began cutting emissions now, total global warming will likely rise around 1.5 degrees Celsius within the next two decades, meaning a hotter future is essentially locked in.

NYU Stern CSB’s Return on Sustainability Investment (ROSI) Methodology is contributing to this change through helping corporate leaders and investors better understand ESG data and bridge the gap between sustainability strategies and financial performance. CSB is also working with companies directly to integrate sustainability strategies through the Energy Management Apparel Sustainability Strategy which focuses on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Excerpt: “Not all is lost, humanity can still prevent the planet from getting even hotter. Doing so would require countries to stop adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere by around 2050, which would entail a rapid shift away from fossil fuels immediately.”
