“My goal is for companies to not have a separate climate plan but to have a business plan where climate is baked in.” 

– Elizabeth Sturcken

“It’s really a pressing moment right now.” 

– Dr. Crystal Upperman

Key takeaways & next steps:

  • The Environmental Defense Fund’s (EDF) Net Zero Action Accelerator is designed to provide practical guidance, resources, and training to help companies take science-aligned actions to address climate change. This new climate action hub helps businesses fast track and scale climate progress, reach their sustainability goals, and galvanize net zero leadership across supply chains. It offers 25 pathways and 75 customizable action steps to support six industries in their climate transformation across scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.
  • Companies that embrace sustainability and climate action often experience positive feedback loops, including business returns, reduced supply chain risk, increased customer engagement, and improved employee morale. Businesses should implement sustainable practices as a matter of environmental necessity as well as strategic business investment. 
  • It is imperative that corporations integrate climate and sustainability goals into their core business plans. Companies must act responsibly and transparently regarding climate change, environmental justice, and sustainability.
