|Description|| Tackling ‘short-lived climate pollutants’ (SLCPs) – including methane, black carbon, tropospheric ozone or hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) – is vital to reduce near-term global warming and improve human well-being.
Businesses taking action to reduce these emissions can deliver rapid and measurable benefits in air quality, public health and food security whilst also boosting economic growth and making a key contribution to global climate change mitigation efforts.
|Objectives||Companies making this commitment are taking action to reduce ‘short-lived climate pollutants’ (SLCPs) – including methane, black carbon, tropospheric ozone and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) – vital to significantly reducing near-term global warming and improving public health.|
|Activities|| HOW COMPANIES CAN ENGAGE IN THIS INITIATIVE
Include measurement and reporting of black carbon and co-pollutants, methane and/or HFCs into their GHG accounting, Reduce emissions of SLCPs, Promote best practices and showcase successful efforts, including through Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) initiatives, Engage stakeholders in their supply chain to reduce emissions of SLCPs, Businesses are invited to join the sector-specific initiatives of the CCAC to scale up their SLCP action. The CCAC brings together 48 countries and 57 non-state partners, including BSR, UNEP, and the World Bank, to catalyse policies and practices that deliver substantial SLCP reductions.
