In the first seven months of 2018, humans consumed a full year’s worth of natural resources. Which is nearly twice as fast as our planet can regenerate them.
Politicians are struggling to put their words into action and effectively tackle the climate challenge by living up to UN goals and international obligations such as the Paris Agreement.
The climate challenge is growing every day and requires a global decrease in greenhouse gas emissions. That is why LM Wind Power decided to take action. As a wind turbine blade manufacturer, they felt a certain responsibility to talk the talk and walk the walk when it comes to addressing the future of our planet.
They pledged to become the first carbon neutral business in the industry. A very ambitious goal, but by July 2018, they reached it! LM Wind Power went from a 240,000-ton CO2 footprint in 2017 to a net zero footprint in 2018 — even avoiding red numbers in the process.
However, to reach zero was a difficult journey. There was very limited guidance on how to set up a carbon neutrality program, and no easy answers to be found anywhere. This scattered landscape of information also lacked an engaging storyline that could be leveraged as a guiding star to help inspire businesses seeking to neutralize their carbon footprint.
Recognizing this challenge, LM Wind Power decided to make it easier for other companies to start their own green transition.
By sharing what they learned from their own journey, they could empower decision-makers from other companies — who had the desire to take the same leap but lacked the necessary know-how — to get started. Sustainability should not be solely an expense or a fluffy communications approach; it should be a way to differentiate your brand, save money for your business and inspire positive action.
We call it ‘10 STEPS TO BECOMING A CARBON NEUTRAL BUSINESS’.
