Translating for impact - Generate Zero's Commitment at COP28

COP stands for "Conference of the Parties", where the "parties" are the countries that signed up to the original UN climate agreement in 1992. The summit is being held in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, from 30 November until 12 December 2023.

With the first review of the Global Stocktake this year's COP is set to be transformative. Generate Zero will be there keeping a finger on the pulse, deciphering opportunities for technology and data to transform and accelerate Climate Action.

Government negotiations and the Global Stocktake

Climate change is not a distant hazard but an urgent reality affecting lives worldwide. At Generate Zero, we're at the forefront of the fight against climate change, staying abreast of government negotiations to translate the latest developments into action through our cutting-edge software solutions for carbon emission measurement, reporting, and reduction.

As we gear up for COP28 in Dubai, the Global Stocktake emerges as a crucial tool, evaluating the state of global climate action as part of the Paris Agreement. This process assesses national climate plans, scientific studies, and country reports to identify progress, gaps, and the bold decisions needed to accelerate change.

The recent UNFCCC Global Stocktake synthesis report highlighted the need for more ambition, implementation, and accountability in meeting Paris Agreement commitments. It emphasized the powerful role of law and policy in driving sustained transformation across economies and communities.

How organizations can accelerate Climate Action

At Generate Zero, our focus aligns with the urgency expressed in the report. Here's how we're contributing to climate action:

  • Action: The time to act is now. Understanding your carbon emissions opens possibilities for meaningful cuts.
  • Targets: Setting both near-term and long-term targets is crucial. Demonstrating progress engages stakeholders and ensures a pathway to net-zero.
  • Data: Access to quality data is vital. Leaders in disclosure invest in data collection and continuous improvement for effective decision-making.
  • International: Measuring carbon emissions per international standards is essential for sustainable relationships with offshore buyers and investors.
  • Financed Emissions: Financial institutions leverage data and AI to measure financed emissions effectively, paving the way for strategic reduction strategies.
  • Collaboration: Decarbonization is a team effort. We identify and share successful decarbonization ideas to expedite progress.
  • Engagement: Involving your team with decarbonization projects is crucial. Dashboards and targets create a sense of involvement and authenticity.
  • Scope 3 Emissions: Measuring scope 3 emissions is challenging but necessary. Start now, identify gaps, and innovate for progress.
  • Decarbonization Strategy: Sharing best practices accelerates progress. We embed benchmarking and insights into our tools to aid clients in building effective decarbonization pathways.

As we head into COP28, Generate Zero will be on the ground in Dubai keeping a finger on the pulse and interpreting the Governmental signals into tangible actions that organizations can take to ensure temperature rises stay below 1.5 degrees for a sustainable future. 
Join us in the fight against climate change, where innovation, data, and collaboration lead the way. Together, we can create a liveable future on Earth
