Calculate, reduce, and influence – climate efforts start here
Changes in the climate affect everything, including businesses and industries. But there is a lot the private sector can do to slow this process, and redirect for the future.
A good start is to:
Measure and analyse the operation's total climate impact, both direct and indirect emissions. When we know where the emissions occur, and how large they are, we can take effective measures to reduce them.
Climate emissions must be reduced, both long and short term. Develop an action plan. Picking the low-hanging fruit is just as important as planning for larger, more costly measures.
Influence others' emissions
Demand that your suppliers and partners take climate action. This is increasingly important for the organization's sustainability reporting. Show that you are one step ahead.
Examples of IVL's practical work in climate change
Integrated research on the entire climate system
Nevermore, an EU Horizon project, takes a comprehensive approach to the climate system, with modelling and close collaboration with local actors. The aim is to increase understanding of the interaction between different types of measures.
Sweden's climate transition
Lessons for climate transition
IVL's research programme Mistra Carbon Exit recently released a report containing important lessons with which Sweden can accelerate its climate change efforts.
Climate change adaptation
Initiatives at municipal level
Climate change forces us to adapt society immediately, so we can manage extreme weather events. Is your municipality keeping up?
CCfDs and climate fees can help transform industry
Some of the key players in the climate transition are found in the basic industry. But for industry to make a successful post-carbon transition, demand for fossil-free products must increase and the cost of its production must fall.
