10:20 – 11:40 EET — Mind the gap: Addressing accuracy in carbon emission reporting

More businesses than ever are committing to net-zero – yet global emissions continue to increase. How can this be so? One key factor is the accuracy gap: the delta between the emissions organisations think they are producing and the emissions they are actually producing. When businesses don’t calculate their full emissions, the resulting blind spots lead to inadequate reduction measures, underreported emissions, and insufficient climate targets. This not only prevents businesses from effectively fighting climate change, but also blocks business opportunities and endangers brand equity. In short, flawed calculations lead to flawed results – which can expose businesses to severe consequences.

17:20 – 18:00 EET — Individual versus industrial change: who's responsible for reaching global net-zero emissions

Humanity has a limited window in which we can hope to avoid the worst effects of climate change. Most, if not all, people in the Western world need to change their behaviour drastically for us to reach net-zero emissions. What has been lacking to do so is access to information on what one’s individual lifestyle footprint is, but we now have the ability to democratise access to this type of data. But even though conspicuous consumption and excessive lifestyle habits make up a great proportion of the global footprint, an individual change in behaviour won’t solely solve the climate crisis. We also need to link individual consumption to industrial level emissions, so individuals and industry together can achieve change at scale. The two need to be triangulated, particularly without necessary regulation for environmental calculations currently in place. In this seminar, we will discuss individual versus industrial change and who’s responsible for reaching global net-zero emissions.

The Exponential Roadmap Initiative brings together innovators, transformers and disruptors taking action in line with 1.5°C, with the mission to halve emissions before 2030 through exponential climate action and solutions. The Exponential Roadmap Initiative is an accredited partner of the United Nations’ Race To Zero, and a founding partner of the 1.5°C Supply Chain Leaders and the SME Climate Hub.

The 1.5°C Business Playbook is a guideline for companies and organisations of all sizes to set a 1.5°C aligned strategy and move to action. Focusing on simplicity and speed, it is anchored in the latest science.

The Exponential Roadmap highlights 36 solutions with exponential scaling potential to halve global greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. It shows how we can build a stronger, more resilient and future-proof global economy and increase human prosperity and wealth- within the planetary boundaries.
