Climate Action

A profitable business sector without climate impactis the Haga Initiatives vision. In several reports, The Haga Initiative has proven that climate action is profitable. This has been done through interviews with companies, reviews of several research reports as well as extensive surveys where companies have answered questions on how climate action affects their profitability.

The following bullet points show areas where climate action is profitable:

  • Brand value and customer loyalty
  • Cost savings
  • Attractive employers and more productive employees
  • New products and business areas
  • Proactive risk management
  • Improved financing opportunities

Inspiration

GHG Emission Disclosure

The companies in the Haga Initiative report their emissions in a joint GHG Emission Disclosure. In the report, the companies disclose their corporate targets, climate impact and actions to meet the targets.

Reduced Emissions

The companies in the Haga Initiative have all pledged to reduce emissions by at least 40 percent until 2020 and to achieve net zero emissions by 2030. This does not inhibit the companies’ competitiveness - on the contrary.
