The big picture is clear. It is our corporate duty to fight climate change brought on by carbon emissions. But we are running against the clock and we must act now. As the Paris climate agreement maps out, we must limit global warming to 2°C above preindustrial levels.

How a Scorecard Can #Movethedate

As of August 2, 2017, humanity has used up all the resources provided by Mother Nature for the whole 2017. And each year that day comes earlier. For more than 10 years, Schneider Electric has been committed to #MoveTheDate of #EarthOvershootDay
Article

The costs of global ecological overspending are becoming increasingly evident around the world, in the form of deforestation, drought, fresh-water scarcity, soil erosion, biodiversity loss, and the buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. But the trend can be reversed, if we moved Earth Overshoot Day back 4.5 days every year, we would return to using the resources of one planet by 2050.

Towards a Circular Economy to #MoveTheDate

Blog

Across the globe, about 50 percent of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are tied to materials. The United Nations, for example, estimates that in 41.8 million tonnes (Mt) of electronic waste there is 16 Mt of iron, 1.9 Mt of copper and 300 tonnes of gold, plus other precious metals such as palladium, with a combined value of $52 billion. Therefore, the transition to a circular economy not only contributes to climate action, but can have significant economic benefits as well.
