What is it about?

Corporate collaborations with key stakeholders on deep decarbonization can create equity value for shareholders. Shifting from rivalrous corporate behavior to collaborative practices can attract much needed equity capital even to hard-to-abate sectors and accelerate the low-carbon transition.

Why is it important?

The world must cut carbon emissions deeply in a short period of time to avoid the worst consequences from climate change. I show that companies can help do this while still attracting equity capital, if they collaborate on decarbonization with suppliers, customers, competitors and policymakers by focusing on the key equity value drivers.


I hope this article helps companies accelerate decarbonization in their operations and in their supply chains without sacrificing financial stability. The business sector must do much more to help drive the transition to a net-zero carbon economy. The timing of climate action critically determines its success.
