As Paris Climate Change Agreement was officially signed by all 196 participating nations signals a global shift towards a low carbon economy in the 21st century. Businesses should seize the opportunity to significantly adjust business models to move towards low carbon production, product-service systems, cradle-to-cradle design, and industrial ecology. Businesses can expect increasing regulation in regards to disclosure, transparency and carbon markets.
To meet growing demand for sustainable goods and services, businesses around the world are innovating and developing new ways of doing business. Indian businesses across all sectors must innovate and improve upon existing business practices to remain internationally competitive.
There is a huge opportunity for future focused business leaders as the globe transitions to a low carbon future. The Paris Agreement allows individual countries flexibility in determining the carbon reductions and gives businesses a greater role in setting the agenda for a transition to a low carbon future. This change from a ‘top down’ to a ‘bottom up’ approach has created significant opportunities for innovation, positioning, restructuring, and growth in new markets. Businesses have the opportunity to engage in dialogue with governments to enable achievement of commitments. Our expert consultants can help governments and businesses meet the challenges posed by energy security and climate change, while delivering sustainable solutions that maximize the benefits for our clients.
