Climate change is the paramount problem of the decade, demanding urgent attention and action. Communities worldwide feel the consequences, such as rising sea levels, extreme weather events, ecological disruptions, and health risks. This underscores the need for immediate and concerted efforts to mitigate and adapt to this unprecedented crisis. In response, enterprises increasingly recognize the importance of embarking on their net-zero journey to address the climate crisis.
However, many enterprises face challenges that hinder their progress, such as limited resources, unclear roadmaps, siloed Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) data, and the complexity of transitioning their operations and supply chains to low-carbon alternatives.
