Corporate actions causing destruction of eco-systems
We estimate that the global corporate sector will cause at least $7.6 trillion of damage to the environment in 2021. This is due to the emission of greenhouse gases, the disposal of unrecycled waste in landfill, and the discharge of untreated water. There are many other actions that are causing additional damage, and this estimate is a minimum.
Our Data Platform monitors and benchmarks the level of emissions, waste disposal and water discharge for each company. We estimate the levelized cost of abatement for each element to arrive at our overall estimates.
