Millions at risk

WWF and climate change To avoid catastrophic climate change the world must limit global warmingto well below 2 C from pre-industrial levels Global GHG emissions must be reduced with at least 80% below 1990levels by 2050 Industrialized countries must reduce emissions 25-40% below 1990levels by 2020

Some Results Over the last decade, members of the programme will jointly have reducedtheir emission by 50 million tonnes since the program’s inception in 1999(equivalent to the annual emission of Switzerland) Demonstrated that reducing emissions is consistent with growing output andshareholder value Inspired suppliers, consumers and industry peers to address GHG emissions Commitments by businesses are building support for a strong internationalpolicy framework and national regulation on climate change

but is this enough?Total reductions of the programme are only small in terms of total emissions andeven when compared to the annual global growth of emissions.Climate Business leaders need to be change agents, not only in their ownemission reductions, but also in their supply chain, the policy debate, and indeedtheir entire business model.
