South Pole

From Ambition to Action

South Pole works with businesses and governments across the globe. They help realise decarbonisation pathways across industries, based on a thorough understanding of climate risks and opportunities in specific sectors, as well as the highest emission reduction standards.

Financing the goals of the Paris climate agreement calls for a fundamental shift in the global economy. South Pole’s success hinges on re-allocating capital at scale, unlocking substantial investments, being nimble and seizing opportunities.

Vision: Climate action for all

The moral case for climate action is clear – failing to meet the climate and sustainable development challenge would push hundreds of millions of people into poverty, with devastating social and economic consequences globally. Moreover, millions of new green jobs are already being created through climate actions across sectors. Climate and human development are sides of the same coin. South Pole strives for a world where businesses, governments and communities make climate action the new normal.

Mission: Accelerating the transition to a climate-smart society

South Pole’s team of over 500 social entrepreneurs globally are developing innovative solutions tailored to the needs of specific organisations and entire sectors.
