Climate change affects everything

If we are to manage the challenge of climate change, businesses and organizations must adapt now. IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute helps the private and public sectors to lead this shift.

Calculate, reduce, and influence – climate efforts start here

Changes in the climate affect everything, including businesses and industries. But there is a lot the private sector can do to slow this process, and redirect for the future.

A good start is to:

Calculate emissions

Measure and analyse the operation's total climate impact, both direct and indirect emissions. When we know where the emissions occur, and how large they are, we can take effective measures to reduce them.

Reduce emissions

Climate emissions must be reduced, both long and short term. Develop an action plan. Picking the low-hanging fruit is just as important as planning for larger, more costly measures.

Influence others' emissions

Demand that your suppliers and partners take climate action. This is increasingly important for the organization's sustainability reporting. Show that you are one step ahead.

Integrated research on the entire climate system

Nevermore, an EU Horizon project, takes a comprehensive approach to the climate system, with modelling and close collaboration with local actors. The aim is to increase understanding of the interaction between different types of measures.

Initiatives at municipal level

Climate change forces us to adapt society immediately, so we can manage extreme weather events. Is your municipality keeping up?

CCfDs and climate fees can help transform industry

Some of the key players in the climate transition are found in the basic industry. But for industry to make a successful post-carbon transition, demand for fossil-free products must increase and the cost of its production must fall.
