Common Plastics Found in Marine Litter
92% of plastics entering the oceans are macroplastics.
Left alone, these plastics will break down into microplastics which enter the very beginning of the food chain, permeating through all species, including ourselves, with consequences which today we are only beginning to understand.
TODAY 4.6 BILLION TONS OF PLASTIC IS EITHER IN LANDFILL OR OUR ENVIRONMENT
PLASTIC KILLS MILLIONS OF MARINE ANIMALS EVERY YEAR
Carbon Credits $50Bn by 2030
For many companies to challenge themselves to achieve net-zero emissions, which means removing as much greenhouse gas from the air as they put into it, this is a tough ask and will need to consider the use of carbon credits to offset emissions.
Estimates have valued carbon credits could be worth upward of $50 billion in 2030.
Carbon credits support investment into the innovation required to lower the cost of emerging climate technologies.
Carbon credits can help companies to meet their climate-change goals
To meet the worldwide net-zero target, companies will need to reduce their own emissions as much as they can (while also measuring and reporting on their progress, to achieve the transparency and accountability that investors and other stakeholders increasingly want). For some companies, however, it’s prohibitively expensive to reduce emissions using today’s technologies, though the costs of those technologies might go down in time. In some markets of course, certain sources of emissions cannot be eliminated. Because of these limitations, the emissions-reduction pathway to a 1.5-degree warming target effectively requires “negative emissions,” which are achieved by removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
