Centre is lead partner in the Exponential Roadmap Initiative, designed to help companies and organisations halve global greenhouse gas emissions by 2030

The 1.5°C Business Playbook is a spin-off from the Exponential Roadmap, a science based cross-sector collaboration launched in 2018. It highlights 36 solutions with exponential scaling potential to halve global greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

The 1.5°C Business Playbook guides companies and organisations of all sizes to exponential climate action and helps them align with the 1.5°C ambition. It is a concrete tool to facilitate the first step of halving emissions, and focuses on simplicity and speed.

The playbook is based on four pillars: to reduce own emissions, reduce value chain emissions, integrate climate in business strategy, and influence climate action in society.

The second version of the Playbook has been updated based on the feedback from scientists, innovators, NGOs and business leaders, to ensure that it stays relevant across supply chains and is anchored in the latest development and science.

Says Line Gordon, director at the Stockholm Resilience Centre:

“Serving the needs of all within the planetary boundaries is a complex challenge but we need simple tools and rules of thumb that can guide us forward. That is why we are proud to be part of this collaborative and iterative effort between science and the private sector.”
