Companies play a key role in solving the climate crisis. Besides reducing their own emissions, many companies should be expected to finance external climate projects that avoid or remove emissions. However, there is currently no consensus on the best way of providing this support.
In this webinar we will hear from organizations and companies deeply involved in this issue, They will share their perspectives and discuss the following questions:
How could companies contribute to external climate projects (also called beyond value chain mitigation)? Options include (but are not limited to) setting an internal carbon tax used to support projects, setting aside a share of profits or revenue, or compensating their emissions with carbon credits.
How much should companies be expected to contribute? And how could that differ between industries?
What kind of climate projects should be recommended for companies to support?
What kind of claims could/should companies make on the back of such investments, and how can companies be incentivized to support beyond value chain mitigation?
