UNGCMY / MDBC: 1.5ºC Business Ambition

August 24, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dear MDBC members,

A special report released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2018, seeks to limit global average temperature to well below 2ºC. It has also marked 1.5º – degrees as a key tipping point beyond which the risk of extreme drought, wildfires, floods, and food shortages will increase dramatically. The Earth is already at 1.3ºC, and a global response is urgently needed to prevent irreversible damages that climate change brings.  In response to this, United Nations Global Compact invites companies from around the world to join the 1.5ºC Business Ambition campaign, where businesses commit and progress their climate action through science – based target setting.

Join us in this webinar and be introduced to an overview of the science – based targets, how companies can benefit from embarking on this journey, and the existing opportunities offered by UN Global Compact Network Malaysia & Brunei to assist you in transitioning smoothly to a low carbon future.
