According to the IPCC, human activities are estimated to have caused approximately 1.0°C of global warming above pre-industrial levels, with a likely range of 0.8°C to 1.2°C. Global warming is likely to reach 1.5°C between 2030 and 2052 if it continues to increase at the current rate.
Climate-related risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security, and economic growth are projected to increase with global warming of 1.5°C and increase further with 2°C.
Therefore, we are committed to the following:
Firstly, emissions: we have a 100% client engagement target for GHG emissions disclosure by 2030.
Secondly, we have a commitment to water related innovation. A 10-Year Commitment (2020 - 2030) to increase stakeholder’s awareness and education around water security issues.
Thirdly, forests: we aim to publicly disclose data on forest-related impact to investors through a public platform.
