The 2020 Climate Survey: Evaluating Progress on Climate Change

Our February 18 webinar explored results from the latest edition of the GlobeScan / SustainAbility Survey (GSS), which evaluates progress on addressing climate change generally, and specifically on corporate action and leadership.

GSS is one of the longest-running expert surveys on sustainability-related topics of its kind. In the 2020 Climate Survey we analyzed the viewpoints of over 550 global sustainability experts representing business, government, NGOs and academia across 47 countries on a range of questions including:

  • Importance of various societal actors in making progress toward the goals of the Paris Agreement
  • The relative effectiveness of various instruments and strategies for corporate action on climate change
  • Risks to companies that do not take action
  • Which companies have gained the widest recognition for their leadership on climate change and why?

The webinar featured a lively discussion among Mark Lee, Executive Director at SustainAbility, Chris Coulter, CEO at GlobeScan, and guest panelists:

  • Katie Sullivan, Managing Director, IETA
  • Charles Allison, Partner, Energy & Climate Change Services, Environmental Resources Management (ERM)
  • Carmel McQuaid, Head of Sustainable Business, Marks and Spencer
