The CEO Climate Dilemma - CLIDEMY CLIMATE ACTION POLL - India Renewable Energy Consulting – Solar, Biomass, Wind, Cleantech

CEOs are one of the most powerful stakeholders worldwide when it comes to climate action. They after all hold all most of the strings – purse strings, human strings and the strategy strings.

CEOs in most of the carbon emitting industries have a really big challenge when it comes to decarbonization: If they were to take really quick, deep climate action, there is a good chance their businesses might suffer in the short term, and some might even face critical uncertainties in their operations. Sure, sustainability and climate action pay over a longer term, but most CEOs have to answer many questions every 3 months!

Is it any surprise that many of them go for somewhat questionable decarbonization schemes such as carbon offsets and carbon trading? Essentially, they cannot bite the bullet right now, so they are OK with paying off someone else to do the “job”.

I work with a number of CEOs, across industries, and all of them personally have highly positive intentions for environment. But when it comes to their actual work and decisions on climate action, most of them are paying lip service, or worse, greenwashing.

Today’s Clidemy poll is thus on this topic – your opinion on how CEOs are doing on climate action.
