Climate Change Management
By signing the Paris Agreement (COP 21) in 2015, the international community of states made a commitment under international law to limit the anthropogenic, global warming to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels. In order to achieve these levels, ambitious climate change goals aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions will be required worldwide. These goals can only by achieved by a gradual transition to a low-carbon economy and society. The sustainable economic transition process is intrinsically linked to the innovative capacity of the companies involved.
