LEAD THE NATIONAL BUSINESS TOWARDS NET ZERO
The earth is facing a change that has unlikely happened before: a climate change that is happening in a single time span of human life. None of the human’s life aspects is immune from the uncertainty that comes with the change of the Earth’s climate, and that includes the business sectors. In order to survive, companies must take actionable steps to reduce their emissions.
Find out how your company can reduce emissions to save both your business and the planet.
CLIMATE CHANGE IS AFFECTING YOUR BUSINESS
More and more companies are shifting towards net zero as business leaders are acknowledging that climate-related catastrophes, from extreme weather to destructive disasters, are threats that can directly impact many sides of business.
Environmental disasters, such as heavy rain and flooding, can pose damaging results to business facilities and workforce.
Business resources, like certain agricultural products and energy, are at risk due to low resilience in extreme weather.
Unpredictable environmental changes resulting in regulatory and political shifts causes businesses to face compliance challenges.
WHAT IS NET ZERO?
Net Zero (business) is reducing greenhouse gas emission and/or ensuring that the produced emissions are balanced by removals (of the produced greenhouse gas). The growing popularity of this term among companies in the last couple of years has shown the growing awareness of the very important value of Net Zero. Companies have now realized that without active participation, the world might break the 1.5 degree Celsius ceiling. And when that ceiling is broken, there would be expensive consequences to be paid by the companies themselves.
That’s why global companies are actively taking part in the global movement of less Carbon business. More than ever, the private sector holds a key role in leading the world towards Net Zero.
As Indonesia advances further into the movement, the private sector shall no longer take a backseat in the dynamics of climate actions and instead step up to take real, measurable, and committed actions. Such participation not only would help national companies to sustain, but also to help Indonesia to achieve its global commitment to reduce the greenhouse gas emission.
WHY NET ZERO?
Global leaders are reshaping the business ecosystem to adapt better to not only environmental changes, but also to consumer behavior changes that increase demands for climate-responsible products. Regulators, investors, and the market have adopted business regulations that prioritize the environment, such as importers implementing a green certificate requirement for exporters, investors obligating renewable energy usage in targeted investment locations, and investment entities cutting funds to industries producing high CO2 emission.
GETTING TO NET ZERO
Starting your journey towards net zero doesn’t have to be complex. With well-defined framing and action plans, your company will be ready to compete alongside global companies in the net zero business ecosystem. KADIN Net Zero Hub will assist your process.
TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE INDONESIA:
KADIN NET ZERO HUB
Sooner more than later, Indonesia will become part of the global net zero business ecosystem. Joining the movement now and being a step ahead will be beneficial for private companies, as participation of the Indonesia’s private sector, in particular, is still at its earlier stage. This is in part due to a gap between issue awareness and taking action.
As part of the Indonesian private sector, your company’s journey to net zero commitment will be assisted by Net Zero Hub, an initiative by KADIN that aims to put Indonesian businesses on the global net zero map.
