Marion Verles, Gold Standard CEO: The Climate Chain

WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH ME AND MY ORGANISATION?

While the adoption of the Paris Agreement and the commitments submitted by countries represent a significant step in the fight against climate change, the amount of ambition is still insufficient to keep global warming at a level that is safe for the most vulnerable communities and critical ecosystems on the planet.

CHANGE IN ALTITUDE: In post-Paris world, aviation industry seeks sustainable growth

This marks a turning point in the fight against climate change. On the heels of these developments, the aviation industry does not intend to be left behind. Aviation is a fast-growing industry and accounts for 1.5% of global GHG emissions. According to the IPCC, this number could grow to as high as 15% by 2050 if urgent action isn’t undertaken.

The role of voluntary carbon offsetting in a post-Paris world

A couple of months ago, the adoption of the Paris Climate Agreement was in the headlines of every major news outlet around the world. The Paris Agreement represents a major landmark, not only because of its significance as the first truly global climate treaty, but also because of the unprecedented mobilization of state and non-state actors in creating the right conditions to facilitate the adoption of a text that was agreed to by over 190 countries.
 
This unprecedented mobilization is tangible at every level.

Gold Standard Conference 2016: Grow to Zero

Zero is a big number. Zero poverty or hunger. Zero net GHG emissions.
Zero net deforestation. Zero biodiversity loss.

How do we get to zero?
More critically, how do we sustain growth along the way?

COP21 Analysis

For Gold Standard, the Paris Climate Accord provides a good starting point for shaping the transition to a low-carbon economy. It is also a strong affirmation of the need for our work to increase the volume and effectiveness of funding for climate security and to help communities around the world develop sustainably.

Gold Standard has entered into a collaboration with the Science Based Targets Initiative to explore the role of businesses in financing additional emissions reductions outside of their own operations or supply chain. This provides further means for the private sector to accelerate global decarbonisation.
