We have already reached 1.1 degrees Celsius of global warming. We could reach 1.5 by 2030. We need urgent action!
Climate Neutral Now is an initiative launched by UN Climate Change in 2015 to encourage everyone in society to take action to help achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century, as enshrined in the Paris Agreement.
To avoid the worst effects of climate change, science tells us that we must limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius, or a maximum of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, which is also the central goal of the Paris Agreement. To achieve this objective, relying solely on governmental action will not be sufficient. We all have a role to play.
Circle is proud to announce that we are now offering UNFCC Climate Neutral Now accreditation to all of our clients.
As a Global Resource Partner, you can trust in our ability to accurately measure your carbon footprint, make recommendations for reducing it, and offsetting the remainder. These services have been validated at the highest level.
Circle is one of only 21 official global partners to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change's (UNFCCC) initiative, and the only partner in Canada.
Climate Neutral Now invites organizations, governments and citizens to work towards global climate neutrality by addressing their own climate footprint through a 3-step method:
- Measure their greenhouse gas emissions. also called the carbon footprint;
- Reduce them as much as possible through their own actions; and
- Compensate those which cannot be currently avoided by using UN certified emission reductions (CERs), a type of carbon credit.
Benefits of Climate Neutral now
Join a growing group of leading organizations and individuals to incentivize behavioural changes which in turn will drive the change within their industries and networks, helping align them with the Sustainable Development Goals. Become a leader and support society to succeed against this challenge.
Use this opportunity to apply one of the tools we have available to support climate action at global level: the carbon markets. By doing this you provide incentive for further emission reductions, support the development of a price on carbon, and give a clear signal to industry and policy makers that climate action is necessary.
Companies and other organizations are now understanding that action on climate makes good business sense because business cannot succeed in a society that fails, and because there are economic opportunities if we act to address climate today.
Finally, take responsibility NOW for the emissions that you cannot currently avoid. Try to reduce your emissions as much as possible, and keep continuously trying to reduce them, but compensate those that you have not been able to eliminate.
