Business Ambition for 1.5°C

If we want to continue to do business, thrive and enjoy our time on this planet, we have to take action in order to ensure that climate change does not take its toll.

During 2019, Orbia pledged to an effort to limit the worst impacts of climate change in accordance with the Business Ambition for 1.5°C. Orbia is the first company of its kind to sign this commitment and we are proud to take a brave step towards a better future for our planet. 

A report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has indicated that global temperature increases need to be kept within 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Any temperature increase has a negative impact on oceans, rainfall, floods, forests, crops, cities, economies and many other aspects of our lives. Beyond 1.5°C, the consequences will be dire.
