Breakthrough innovation has the potential to accelerate and scale up solutions to addressing decent work deficits.

It explores how technology can advance decent work in global supply chains, specifically focusing on the potential of blockchains. Experts from the UN Global Compact, International Labour Organisation, SAP Ariba, Eachmile Technologies and Sourcemap discuss how blockchains are already used to advance decent work in global supply chains and explore the potential blockchain technology has to help improve the live of workers and their families.
This was first webinar where we provided an overview of our “2020 Vision” and heard from engaged stakeholders on the importance of peace, justice and strong institutions to sustainable business – not only as the foundation for business responsibilities but also for business success.

Provides guidance for business and Government to fast track zero-carbon economic growth. With hundreds of businesses pursuing bold climate change solutions and countries updating national climate plans in advance of 2020, the opportunity for greater ambition abounds. More and more businesses are seeing opportunity in the zero-carbon economy and taking action on climate change. Governments must use this as a strong vote of confidence and advance ambitious policies that provide companies with the clarity and confidence they need to unlock further investments in climate solutions. This is the “ambition loop” — a positive feedback loop in which bold Government policies and private sector leadership reinforce each other, and together, take climate action to the next level.
The scientific community has provided continuous warnings that global emissions are jeopardizing our ability to limit warming to a 2°C temperature increase above preindustrial levels. As governments consider new emissions pledges, companies are taking the initiative to align their own emission reduction goals with the 2°C pathway. CDP, WRI, and WWF decided to join forces and provide more comprehensive guidance including a method that illustrates the scale of emissions mitigation required to achieve a 2°C pathway. The first step is the target setting method presented in this report, to help companies set targets based on the best science currently available.
