Closing The Gap, On The Future Of Climate Change
2021 has been a big year, with no shortage of dramatic news headlines filling our feeds, as the world has grappled with navigating a world with COVID-19. Pandemic aside, another topic with even greater importance, and one that we will not be shifting our focus and energy away from, is the climate crisis.
In November, 200 diplomats from nearly 200 countries came together and struck an agreement to intensify global efforts to fight climate change in reaction to The Glasgow Climate Pact.
Key commitments being:
- Deforestation to end by 2030
- Revised emissions target to achieve the maximum increase of 1.5 degrees celsius
- Accelerated fossil fuel & coal phase out agreed
- More than 100 countries signed to slash methane
- Global giants US & China commit to work together for climate action
There is a lot to be done to save our planet, and action needs to be taken… NOW.
Starting the journey is extremely tough, and if we do not even understand the issue at hand to begin with, how can we possibly do, or expect others to do anything about it?
A carbon neutral solution for businesses
Born from the need to educate and accelerate businesses in their journey to carbon neutral, climagap.com was created. climagap.com enables Small to Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) to effortlessly identify their carbon footprint, via a comprehensive carbon calculator which was created with the University of California Berkeley's Cool Climate Network, and to then share their journey to carbon neutrality with the world.

The benefits of starting a journey to carbon neutral, as a small and medium sized enterprise, extends far beyond positive environmental impact.
Consumer care, in a study by Mckinsey 66% of all respondents, and 75% of millennials repoted considering the environment before making a purchase. Your employees care as well: in a survey by Censuswide Almost two-thirds (65%) of employees in UK Offices said that they were more likely to work for a company with strong environmental policies. So by starting your carbon neutral journey, businesses can engage with new customers, attract top talent, reaffirm relationships with existing customers and excite employees at the same time.
SMEs play an outsized role in their ability to impact climate change.

By harnessing the power of these businesses, together, we can drive significant and lasting environmental change.
Why climate action matters
