Answers Only: Opening of Solutions House 2023

How can we accelerate climate solutions and actions exponentially to halve emissions by 2030? This is what Solutions House is all about. 

The theme of Solutions House is 'answers only.' We have the evidence, the knowledge, the technology, and the creativity to transition to a sustainable future for all, and we can do so in a way that benefits people and the planet. Together, we can unleash the potential of exponential solutions to transform the way we all live, work, and thrive in a sustainable world.

We are excited to bring together world leaders in science, policy, and business to explore solutions to the greatest challenges of our time: reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030.

Greening Cash: Spotlight on Emissions From Corporate Finance

Many companies would see a notable surge in their total greenhouse gas emissions if they were counting emissions from how their cash holdings are used by banks. Currently, these emissions indirectly financed by companies escape reporting. But the new Greening Cash Action Guide provides actionable advice for how climate-leading companies can be frontrunners in recognizing, measuring and reducing these emissions. What’s more: By acting on the recommendations and engaging with their banks about climate performance and transition plans, companies support the wider decarbonization of the financial system.

Driving Decarbonization Through Accurate Carbon Accounting

The way companies account for their carbon emissions drives the strategies and activities they undertake to address them. Today’s leading carbon accounting standard, the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHGP), is used by thousands of companies across the world. The GHGP’s Scope 2 Guidance has facilitated growing voluntary markets for clean energy, but its inaccuracies have also led to criticisms of greenwashing. The solution is not to do away with market-based. The solution is not to get rid of market-based accounting, but modernize it to make it more accurate and therefore drive greater decarbonization impact. Come to learn from experts about the importance of Scope 2 carbon accounting and how it can be modernized in this critical decade for decarbonization.
