|Exponential Roadmap Initiative||The 1.5°C Business playbook v1.0||This playbook is developed for companies that want to align with the 1.5°C ambition. Small, medium and larger companies may find it useful both for strengthening their own strategy and to help in engaging suppliers and setting requirements. Companies with advanced climate strategies that have already joined sector climate initiatives can use it to benchmark their approach and raise ambitions. In this capacity, the playbook will help to establish a clear climate strategy, define targets aligned with science, set requirements for suppliers and align supply chains and value propositions with a 1.5°C ambition. This guide is grounded on the Exponential Roadmap which integrates solutions from several research projects such as Project Drawdown and the Low Energy Demand scenario, which are also referenced in this playbook. It highlights 36 key solutions that together can halve global emissions by 2030. These solutions are all market-ready: they are affordable (like wind and solar), can scale rapidly (like reduced food waste) and can save money (like building efficiencies).||01/01/2020|
