As part of its purpose to deliver better care for a better world, Kimberly-Clark’s 2030 sustainability goals include a commitment to reducing its direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 from a 2015 base year.
A joint report by Black & Veatch and Canary Media explores how the climate crisis is pushing decarbonization strategies in the race to net zero.
Climate change no longer is a nebulous concept, as communities around the globe experience the devastating effects of rising temperatures and increasingly extreme weather events. To address this, policymakers, corporations and other stakeholders are plotting ambitious net-zero action, helping to establish electrification and decarbonization as the overarching “megatrends” of 2021, according to a new report from global engineering and construction leader Black & Veatch and Canary Media.

Urgent action is required to limit global temperature rises and the role of business is key. Hosted by Innovation Forum from September 27-29, 2021, this climate action conference will focus entirely on supply chain decarbonization.
Eliminating greenhouse gas emissions in a company’s supply chain and among its customers—so-called Scope 3 emissions—is the biggest challenge in decarbonizing most businesses. Effective solutions are needed that companies can implement to decarbonize their value chains. Globally, buildings account for 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. Fortunately, decades of experience with green buildings support a bold vision for net-zero buildings.
