Achieving Drawdown: What New Levers Can Companies Pull to Help the World Achieve Drawdown?

Today’s definition of business climate leadership centers on companies doing less harm, gradually reducing their emissions—and the damage they cause— over time. But this version of leadership neglects the many other levers that companies have at their disposal to help — or hinder — our future on a livable planet. A drawdown-aligned company leverages all aspects of its business — its social, political, and financial capital, and the power of its employees — to reduce emissions well beyond its own operations and help secure a just climate future for all. Hear from cutting-edge leaders across sectors working to help demonstrate a new leadership paradigm.
