Episode Synopsis

Purpose-driven sustainability plans are all the rage among leading businesses today and with good reason. They help companies significantly boost their brand reputation, while also pulling in customers and investors who are eco-conscious. And that’s not all; such companies also have the added advantage of attracting top talent as more employees now lean towards organizations known to make positive environmental impacts.

For companies looking to simplify their sustainability efforts, the good news is there’s plenty of software designed to do just that. For instance, some decarbonization software options not only help businesses monitor and cut down on scope 1 emissions but also ensure supply chains stay clean. What’s more, they make implementation a breeze.

You might ask, ‘How receptive have companies been to such changes?’ Well, a significant percentage are already getting on board. Roughly 42% of Fortune 500 companies have set, or even achieved, significant climate goals for 2030. There has been an increase of 11% in the number of companies setting these milestones compared to the previous year.

On the flip side, businesses failing to adopt these measures face increasing risks from climate change. According to the CDP, 215 of the world’s biggest companies have identified nearly a trillion dollars in potential risk due to climate impact, which they expect to hit within the next five years. By incorporating decarbonization into their plans, these businesses have a shot at getting ahead of these impending threats.

The belief that going green simply equates to companies losing money couldn’t be further from the truth. The implementation of energy-efficient projects and electrification initiatives can save companies between 20 to 30% of their funds. Even more so, they could see reductions in operational costs of 30 to 40% if they adopt energy efficiency measures.

So, what’s propelling the decarbonization movement? Well, several factors. Apart from consumer expectations and regulatory pressures, there are also significant financial incentives. Not forgetting penalties associated with non-compliance to policies. It’s a mixture of rewards for compliance and repercussions for the lack thereof. That’s how important it has become for companies to incorporate sustainability into their business models. After all, decarbonization doesn’t just save the planet; it’s great for business too.
