Focus on

Climate Change

The climate crisis is the defining issue for our generation. As global temperatures surpass 1.2 degrees and the forecast of a potential 2.5°C rise by end of century hangs in the balance, a systems-based approach to climate change mitigation and adaptation is critical to safeguard livelihoods and our planet. BEI members are at the forefront of delivering these solutions and interventions globally. Together, we highlight the increasing urgency of the challenges and the innovative solutions British expertise can contribute.
