The Global Turning Point has been saved
The Global Turning Point
A Dutch Point of View
Time is no longer running out to act on climate change; it’s up, and the global economy is at a crossroads. But, if the world acts now to achieve net-zero emissions by mid-century rapidly, the transformation of the economy would set the world up for stronger economic growth by 2070. In our five-part blog series, Deloitte experts will go in-depth on decarbonisation, climate risk, implications from a crisis & communications perspective, the general message, and we'll end the series with an article about reporting.
Blog 1 | The Economic Case Against Carbon
In the long run, decarbonization will boost both businesses and the broader economy. Decarbonizing the global economy will open up opportunities and drive growth. If the world acts quickly enough to achieve net zero emissions by the middle of this century, the resulting transformation could fuel stronger economic growth by 2070.
Blog 2 | Facing up to Climate Risk
To prepare for an uncertain future, businesses should thoroughly assess their exposure to a changing climate across both physical and transition dimensions. As the world’s climate changes, organizations are facing myriad of physical risks, such as those arising from an increase in extreme weather events and rising temperatures, and transition risks that arise from changing regulatory environments, policies, investment decisions and public sentiment.
Blog 3 | The Climate: Time to Escalate
It may not be obvious yet, but the climate crisis is probably impacting your business. As the new Deloitte report: The Turning Point: A Global Summary makes clear, many organizations are already feeling the effects. That will continue in both the short and long term, as the number and severity of climate events increase.
Blog 4 | Time to Get to Grips with Sustainability
The climate is at a turning point: It is changing and fast. As a result, investors, employees, customers and suppliers will all want to know how sustainable and resilient your business is (or will be in the near future). Therefore, it's vital for businesses to take sustainability metrics as seriously as they take financial performance.
