We call on G20 leaders to keep 1.5°C within reach
September 30, 2021
Today together with +600 companies we, at Redevco, have signed the We Mean Business Coalition letter calling on G20 leaders to go all in to limit global temperature rise to 1.5ºC.
This letter aims to mobilize a collective, unified business voice to show G20 leaders that business want to see G20 countries demonstrate climate leadership in the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow.
The right policy decisions taken today can drive further investments and spur business decisions in favour of climate solutions across G20 countries. It stresses the importance of collaboration to build stronger, just, and more resilient, nature-positive economies: bringing prosperity and creating decent jobs while protecting health and the planet.
The collective voice of business will give policymakers the confidence needed to increase their climate ambition and unlock policy barriers for companies to accelerate their climate action.
Clemens Brenninkmeijer, Head of Sustainable Business Operations: “The climate crisis won’t wait for humanity to catch up. We have to act now. At Redevco we are focussed on doing what we can to help fight climate change and how we can help mitigate that by working and committing towards a net zero portfolio by 2040. But it’s not straightforward — it’s an ambitious goal and we need the G20 leaders to increase their climate ambition and unlock policy barriers for companies to accelerate their climate action.”
