South Pole Sustainability Report 2019

Climate change is the challenge of our era.

Not long ago, it was seen as a distant threat to our future. Increasingly, it is becoming our reality, a new normal. Barely a day passes without a reference in the media to the threats of climate change and the urgent need for action.

At South Pole, we believe that a greener tomorrow is within reach if we act today to limit global warming. This is why, from its foundation 14 years ago, South Pole has been fighting climate change by supporting projects that lower emissions, helping businesses and organisations succeed in their climate ambitions and transition to a low carbon future, and catalyse investments in impact funds. It is in our power – as businesses, investors, governments, and individuals – to bend the arc of greenhouse gas emissions.

As we progress towards a climate positive future, we need to keep in mind that rising sea levels, droughts and hurricanes hit vulnerable populations the hardest. So, while global warming increases inequality, the solutions we deploy fight it: every day, in over 20 countries, we help our clients create tens of thousands of jobs in developing countries, channel hundreds of millions of dollars in new green business models, and improve living conditions for people around the world.

This report contains examples of our work that bring this purpose and commitment to life. You will read about the steps we are taking to become more environmentally sustainable and socially responsible in everything we do. As part of this, we signed the UN Global Compact in July 2015. This report serves as our Communication on Progress and reaffirms our continuing commitment to its principles.

Finally, we are convinced that good ideas should be implemented at scale – and we, as a brand, are founded on a great idea. Together with our clients, partners and supporters, we are taking on ever more ambitious plans, working with a growing list of clients and creating an expanding community of change agents to help deliver sustainable business solutions for a climate positive world.
