Climate Action

In order to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, we need to cut emissions in half by 2030. 

Taking climate action will help future-proof your business.

How will taking ambitious action in this area benefit your company?

  • Improve efficiency and cut operating costs by reducing energy usage and emissions
  • Strengthen your reputation with customers, suppliers, investors and regulators whilst reducing your exposure to climate risks
  • Stay one step ahead of policy changes and climate regulations
  • Ensure you leave no one behind in the transition to an environmentally sustainable economy

Climate Action*

Target 1

Set corporate science-based net-zero emissions reductions targets in line with a 1.5°C pathway, with the goal of halving global emissions by 2030 and reaching net-zero by 2050 at the latest.

Make A Commitment

Target 2

Contribute to a just transition by taking concrete actions that address social impacts of climate change mitigation and adaptation measures in partnership with actors such as workers, unions, communities and suppliers.

Make A Commitment

*For both Climate Action targets, the Forward Faster initiative is unable to accept commitments from fossil fuel companies.

For Climate Action Target 1, the Forward Faster initiative will accept both net-zero commitments and validated science-based net-zero targets as long as the commitments/validations have been officially processed by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
