Decarbonisation services has been saved
Accelerate your transformation towards low carbon. Build resilience for the future.
Deloitte’s decarbonisation services are designed to support you on your journey towards reducing your GHG emissions and understanding your climate risks. Whether you are trying to understand what sort of decarbonisation target would make the most sense for you, what your technology options are, or understand your carbon footprint, we have the expertise, insights and solutions to help. We can also assure your baseline and emissions portfolio.
The science on climate change is clear: to avoid the most catastrophic effects of global warming, we must limit the increase in global average temperatures to well below 2°C compared with pre-industrial levels.
Pressure on businesses to develop meaningful responses to the climate crisis is mounting.
Governments around the world are setting increasingly ambitious carbon-reduction targets, and the short-term challenge is acute: customers and employees expect action, and investors want answers. To prevent the worst impacts of climate change, decarbonised business models have to be realised quickly across all industries.
Transitioning to a low-carbon economy while adapting to more challenging operating conditions is not simple. However, the next decade presents a big opportunity – organisations that invest to protect our planet now will be more successful in the future. They will be more resilient to the challenges ahead, and gain competitive advantage.
Whether you’re just getting started, or already transitioning, Deloitte’s decarbonisation services can help you. Our team includes engineers, climate scientists, technologists and economists, and working together, we will unlock decision-useful insights and give you the courage to transform. The range of ways we can help includes:
- Decarbonisation target-setting
Helping you understand what decarbonisation targets make most sense for you, whether it be net zero, Science Based Targets, or simply GHG-reduction targets
- Decarbonisation risk and opportunity assessment
Using data-centric modelling to assess the potential cost of decarbonisation at your organisation, and the risk involved.
- Decarbonisation roadmap and strategies
Helping you set your ambition, and then achieve it. We help you define your decarbonisation roadmap, and put in place what you need to activate it.
- GHG emissions reporting and disclosures assurance
Helping you report and disclose your GHG emissions, including Scope 3 emissions
- Decarbonisation education and training
Helping your entire organisation understand the issues of decarbonisation.
Why decarbonisation needs to move from talk to action
The science on climate change is clear: to avoid the most catastrophic effects of global warming, we must limit the increase in global average temperatures to well below 2°C compared with pre-industrial levels. The sobering reality is that we have most likely missed the boat already, and are heading towards a scalding future that it could be hard or impossible to adapt to; 50-degree summers in Portugal could very well become the norm.
Five things you need to know about Science Based Targets
Science Based Targets provide a pathway for companies to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in line with the 2015 Paris Agreement. The Paris Agreement set an ambitious target: to limit the increase in global warming to well below 2°C (and preferably to 1.5°C), compared with pre-industrial levels. In response, many countries began developing plans on how to reach them. The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) translates the Paris requirements into tangible emission-reduction goals for businesses. With over 2,700 organisations signed up to date, should your business be setting a SBT too?
For most companies, a net-zero commitment is a hollow promise
In the long run, decarbonization will boost both businesses and the broader economy
