The Goal 13 Impact Platform is the result of a partnership between Deloitte, the CBI, Chapter Zero, A4S, Dell and the Met Office which aims to stimulate cross-sector collaboration by providing pragmatic and transparent information about the most impactful climate related initiatives in place, highlighting significant gaps in progress and encouraging more ambitious commitments and action. It is an international, free and open repository of climate commitments, actions, approaches to organisation, learnings and barriers, all based on interviews with organisation leaders. The platform publishes company insights, inspiring further climate commitments and action, and facilitating collaboration.
The partners have undertaken research globally with c.250 companies to date (April 2021), with respondents including strategy, sustainability, finance, and procurement leaders, executives, and board directors. Interviews have captured company-specific insights into climate commitments, the organisation of climate programmes, the most impactful initiatives, their climate and commercial impact, barriers to progress and lessons learned. The main benefits for businesses taking part will be to amplify their own progress, galvanise their sector and business partners, and have access to a compelling set of insights and collaboration opportunities. The Goal 13 Impact Platform will serve as a powerful channel to ‘matchmake’ organisations, who are working on similar initiatives and challenges, so that we can accelerate progress through cross-sector collaborations. As such, we are engaging organisations of all sizes and sectors, and we intend to share the findings both through the platform and at partner events. The platform website has been launched and is being updated regularly as more companies contribute. A demo of the platform is also available.
A report was released in late 2020 covering emerging insights from the research undertaken with the first 100 companies.
