”Support publicly the inclusion of ecocide in legislation at all levels (global, regional, national, local).” – Exponential Roadmap Initiative 1.5° Business Playbook
Exponential Roadmap Initiative members – endorsing the 1.5°C Business Playbook – include giants like Google, Microsoft, Unilever, Netflix, Ericsson, Scania and Accenture and a number of other major and smaller companies and organisations.
The handbook is intended for CEOs, board members, business leaders and employees who want to engage in the fastest economic transition in history – and help accelerate it.
It is for companies and organisations of all sizes that are willing to take concrete action to align with the 1.5°C target. The handbook provides hands-on guidelines for setting climate targets, strategies, transition plans, taking action and disclosing results.
The focus is on simplicity and speed, based on the latest science and on on practice and experience from world leading experts and companies.
Suggested actions are divided into four pillars:
- Own emissions
- Value chain emissions
- Helping users to avoid and reduce emissions, by shifting the portfolio of offerings towards such solutions
- Accelerating climate action in society, including ”influencing policies and engaging industry associations to accelerate climate action, making climate and nature contributions beyond the value chain and helping management and employees to adopt sustainable practices.”
Support for ecocide law is found in Pillar 4.
”Ecocide Law Alliance is happy to see Exponential Roadmap Initiative’s strong support for including Ecocide as a new international crime in the Rome Statute by the inclusion of this important issue in their 1,5 degree Business Playbook. This will invigorate the debate and widen the knowledge of Ecocide in the business community even further.”
