Key Areas of Action

Abatement

Rapid reduction of greenhouse gas emissions at a realistic and proven pace, as demonstrated by Science Based Targets. We should do everything possible to abate carbon emissions and transition to ‘clean’ renewable energy. If we do not act now to minimise, our adaption problem will be much larger.

Leverage Points

Emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by the reporting entity.

The amount of carbon by weight emitted per unit of energy consumed (CO2/energy or CO2/Btu). A common measure of carbon intensity is weight of carbon per Btu of energy.

Plants on land and in the ocean convert carbon dioxide to biomass (like leaves and stems) through photosynthesis. The carbon returns to the atmosphere when the plants decay, are eaten and digested by animals, or burn in fires. ... As ecosystems change under a changing climate, the carbon cycle will also change.

Adaptation

We must prepare for more regular and severe natural disasters, as well as weather patterns we have never seen or had to deal with before. We also have to cope with the consequences, which include food and water shortages, homelessness, poor health, mass migration, and violence.

Leverage Points

The rate of reduction in Carbon Dioxide

Actions to limit global warming and its related effects and impact, and adaptation of the climate impacts by increasing resilience.

The process of capturing and storing atmospheric carbon dioxide. It is one method of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere with the goal of reducing global climate change

Transition

Both adaptation and abatement will be insufficient to rescue us from the climate catastrophes. And, if we work together and share knowledge, we may be able to help organisations transition to a future beyond net zero by using information gained from both areas of abatement and adaptation, as well as learning about and appreciating the interrelationship of converging crises. It is up to us to examine our homes and communities, our vulnerabilities and risk exposures, and develop methods to flourish rather than merely survive.

Leverage Points

The process by which a large group of individuals gather and share their knowledge, data and skills that emerges from the collaboration, collective efforts, and competition of many individuals and appears in consensus decision making

The term "regenerative" describes processes that restore, renew or revitalize their own sources of energy and materials.

Natural climate solutions are conservation, restoration and improved land management actions that increase carbon storage or avoid greenhouse gas emissions in landscapes and wetlands across the globe.

Sferå DNA

The key quantitative parameters here are direct emissions, which are very dependent on other factors, and we are well aware of the interdependence of all these leverage points. A significant decrease in emissions does not always have to be accomplished by direct intervention of operating emissions or embedded emissions. These intervention nodes may have an impact on the leverage points from abatement to adaptation to transition. And it doesn't stop there; if we could maintain the information flow of the steps, curate it, and spread it inside the sphere of service design, it may be beneficial for future regeneration of far more powerful and informed intervention.
