COP27: From Theory to Practical Action
Translating high-level theory from COP27 to practical action for ourselves means everyone has a role in our collective journey to a decarbonized future. Utilities and industry in particular have great influence and impact on emissions and customer behavior. Copperleaf’s CMO Boudewijn Neijens highlights how technology helps find the ESG opportunities in asset investment planning and decision making. Transcript: Welcome to Copperleaf's special COP27 coverage. The Conference of Parties (COP) in Egypt is focusing on practical actions that help reduce carbon emissions and address climate change adaptation. Practical actions are what Copperleaf is all about. We focus on ensuring every meaningful decision in your organization includes not only financial and asset-related criteria, but also ESG factors—in particular, carbon reductions and resilience to climate change. Is it easy? No. We all live in a severely constrained world, where money, resources, and time are in short supply. So adding climate change-related targets to your decision-making process can be a real headache. And yet we all understand the increasing urgency of doing so. This is where Copperleaf’s value-driven approach kicks in. Our clients own and manage some of the world's most critical infrastructure, including electricity, water, gas, and transportation. They are fully aware of the high stakes of climate change, and trust Copperleaf to help them make better decisions—day in, day out. Because every time you repair, refurbish, replace, or invest in your assets is an opportunity to progress towards your ESG targets. During COP27, we will be adding new content to this site every day, highlighting how our clients are leveraging our methodology and our solutions. So come visit us often to discover how, together, we can build a better world, one decision at a time.
