Individuals are more likely to buy from or work for companies that take climate change seriously. Businesses often contribute to climate causes to engage employees and customers and demonstrate their commitment to the planet.
But businesses lack an essential tool for meeting – and exceeding – employee and customer expectations. How can companies support the most effective organisations directly regenerating the biosphere on a global scale?
The Global Returns Portfolio is the first selection of diverse, effective and scalable not-for-profits tackling climate change. Our world-class climate scientists help curate the Portfolio and report on its performance, making employees and customers proud with real and meaningful results
Businesses often consider carbon offsetting in their efforts to impress employees and customers. And offsets have an important role to play in tackling climate change. But even the most conscientious companies can struggle to find permanent, additional and verifiable offsets.
Carbon offsetting also faces fundamental limitations in its ability to regenerate the biosphere.
Even the best offsets cannot sue polluters, defend marine life or deliver data on deforestation. They cannot deliver hard-to-quantify or systemic climate solutions.
True regenerators – like the not-for-profits in the Global Returns Portfolio – do not have these limitations. By regenerating the biosphere beyond the capacity of carbon offsets, they more effectively address employee and customer expectations.
