The Climate Imperative Today, we find ourselves confronting the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced: the climate crisis. Sea levels are rising, heatwaves and droughts are causing devastation, and increasingly powerful storms wreak havoc around the world. All of this means human lives lost, increased costs, supply chain disruptions, resource constraints, and huge challenges for governments, organizations, and individuals around the world. This crisis has been caused by human activity. And while we’re already experiencing significant impacts, the consequences of temperatures rising by more than 1.5° C would be truly catastrophic. To avoid surpassing 1.5° C of warming, we must collectively cut emissions in half by 2030 and 1 Reaching this milestone will require both deeply achieve net zero emissions by mid century. decreasing our emissions and, at the same time, removing CO2 that has already been added to the atmosphere. Inextricably linked to the threat of climate change is the importance of maintaining a functioning biosphere. Biodiversity is in free-fall. Earth’s ecosystems are at risk of collapsing. If current trends continue, we’ll overshoot 1.5° C of warming and find ourselves in a world with natural systems in disarray and with serious, irreversible consequences that impact our ability to thrive as a civilization. While we will all feel the impacts of these changes, it is the most vulnerable among us who will experience the worst impacts of climate change and nature loss. A net zero and nature-positive world is a world in balance — a world where the cycles that sustain life are robust, leading to healthy ecosystems and, by extension, healthy animals and humans. We must quickly make a just transition to a net zero, nature-positive world — together. 1IPCC 6th Assessment report, Working Group III on Mitigation from April 2022, 2 | A JUST TRANSITION TO A NET ZERO, NATURE POSITIVE WORLD
