NEW YORK, August 31, 2021 /3BL Media/ - The summer of 2021, with its record-breaking heat waves, devastating floods and wildfires, has vividly illustrated the realities of climate change. This season has served as an uncomfortable reminder that the climate crisis has still barely been addressed, and it is clear that we urgently need to do much, much more as a global economy. This also means that tackling this problem presents us with significant growth opportunities.

Striving for something better is a very human thing. Whether it be a better house, better clothes, a better job, it’s our nature to seek a future, which is an improvement upon the current state. The definition of better, of course, can be as unique as the individual. But when you widen the aperture and pose the question, ‘what does a better world look like?’, it forces consideration of the collective.

First, climate action is the drive to reduce emissions, and includes both the energy transition and waste transition. This means conventional categories such as solar, wind, hydro and batteries, in addition to the electrification of transport, energy efficiency, waste-to-value (recycling) and waste-to-energy (cleaner fuels such as renewable natural gas).

Energy waste is happening all around us, and it’s contributing to climate change. Yet fighting this invisible foe is near impossible – unless we make the invisible visible. Digital innovation, combined with a shift to more electrification, holds the key to tackling climate change, unlocking the ability to see and measure our impact, so we can recognise and reduce it.
Ironically, digital adoption is also one of the biggest barriers to action. Confusion around what to invest in has caused many to delay decisions and wait for a ‘miracle cure’. This paralysis is part of the problem.
The previous posts in this series discussed energy audits and purchasing renewable energy – two very useful and important tools when creating a proper decarbonization strategy. A third tool in the decarbonization toolbox is the purchase of carbon offsets.
Ninety One strives for sustainability with substance
July 8, 2021 /3BL Media/ - Ninety One, an active global investment manager, is proud to announce that it has joined the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative, which supports investing aligned with the global goal of net zero emissions by 2050 or sooner. This commitment underlines Ninety One’s support for the objectives of the Paris Agreement and global efforts to limit global warming to 1.5°C and aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
In the first post of this series, we wrote about energy audits and how a business can use improvements identified in these audits to reduce costs and cut emissions. Once such improvements have been introduced, a business may feel that there is no way to further reduce its carbon footprint – but additional opportunities exist.
Improving energy efficiency and decarbonization is critical for any business, and its importance is growing very quickly as global legislation changes. Carbon taxes, risk disclosures, and other initiatives increase the cost of carbon and can rapidly hurt the financial performance of your company. In this three-part series, Inogen Alliance will outline three ways to decarbonize. In this first post, we will examine ways to reduce your overall energy consumption and emissions by conducting energy audits.
