Tackling climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time and for NatWest Group it’s central to our purpose-led strategy. As the leading bank in the UK for business customers, and one of the largest for retail customers, we have a significant responsibility, and the ability, to encourage, enable and lead the way in helping people across the UK to transition to a net zero carbon economy.
While we understand we have to think long term, we also know that we must act now, and NatWest Group is determined to play a leading role in tackling climate change and helping our customers do the same. Which is why we’re providing customers the option of choosing to receive their bank statements digitally to help reduce CO2 emissions. The work that EcoAct, a leading provider of climate solutions, has undertaken, demonstrates how, if we all make small changes, we can work together towards tackling the climate challenges we face. Switching from monthly paper statements to digital statements is a simple, secure and smart way for our customers to access their bank statements while creating a long term sustainable environment that enables customers and communities to thrive.
Climate science calls for immediate action to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Businesses need to not only reduce emissions but also build resilience, protect nature, and actively contribute to the regeneration of our environment. EcoAct’s ACTR approach can help organisations navigate the complexities and obstacles of transitioning to net-zero.
Climate mitigation refers to actions and strategies taken to reduce or prevent the emission of greenhouse gases and other pollutants into the Earth’s atmosphere. The primary goal of climate mitigation is to limit and ultimately slow down the pace of climate change by curbing the factors responsible for global warming. This typically involves efforts to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and other greenhouse gases, which trap heat in the atmosphere and contribute to global warming. Climate mitigation involves reducing greenhouse gas emissions, transitioning to renewable energy, improving energy efficiency, afforestation, sustainable transportation, waste reduction, policy actions, and behavioral changes to combat climate change and limit global warming.
Climate mitigation is essential to combat global warming, protect the environment, public health, and economies, ensure security, achieve sustainable development, uphold ethics, preserve ecosystem services, foster global cooperation, and prepare for a more resilient future in the face of climate change. At this critical time, when the world needs tangible climate action at every level, ecoacts mission is to guideorganisations in developing and implementing robust and impactful climate action strategies. We enable organisationsacross all sectors to effectively translate their climate ambitions into concrete actions that achieve measurable results and meaningful contributions towards addressing the urgent climate crisis. Businesses that make progress towards net-zero, embracing change and transformation, will play a key role and thrive, while those that lag behind will miss out on growth opportunities or perhaps risk the long-term sustainability of their business. Transition planning works as a business card that allows companies to show investors how they are decarbonising and adapting to climate change while remaining profitable and resilient.
Put simply, net-zero is a state where we addno incremental greenhouse gases (ghg) to the atmosphere. This means emissions output is balanced with the removal of carbon from the atmosphere via carbon sinks (e. g. forests, mangroves, carbon capture and storage, etc. ). The corporate net-zero standard, developed bythe science based targets initiative (sbti) in 2021, provides businesses with a clear blueprint on how to achieve net-zero. With a strong focus on emissions reductions, businesses are required to reduce emissions by 90-95% by 2050. To achieve net-zero, the remaining 5-10% should then be removed through carbon offsetting projects (e.g. forest conservation, afforestation, reforestation, improved forest management, regenerative agriculture, renewable energy, fuel switch, etc. ).
The concept of the 1.5oc threshold originates fromthe paris agreement the international accordon climate change established by the unitednations in 2015. This international climate treatyset the objective of keeping the global averagetemperature well below 2oc above than pre-industrial levels, with a preferred limit of 1.5oc. As part of the paris agreement, the un conventionon climate change (unfccc) requested theintergovernmental panel on climate change (ipcc)to produce a special report on the impacts of globalwarming of 1.5oc warmer than pre-industrial levelsand related global greenhouse gas (ghg) emissionpathways. According to the ipccs special report7published in 2018, to achieve a 1.5oc limit withminimal overshooting, net global co2 emissionsneed to fall by about 45% from 2010 levels by 2030and reach net-zero by around 2050. Meeting a 1.5oc limit, therefore, requires rapid andfar-reaching transitions across all sectors, a wideportfolio of mitigation options, and a substantialupscaling of investments in those options. Italso requires a significant contribution fromnature-based and technology-based solutions(ntbs). To unlock this capability, ntbs requireadditional funding and adherence to internationallyrecognised standards that safeguard the rightsof indigenous peoples and local communities, while also ensuring strict social and environmentalsafeguards to prevent any negative impacts onlocal communities
