A combination found nowhere else
Solutions you'll find only here
We see continuity-vital companies that are also sustainability & ESG leaders as accelerators of broader societal adaptation, because as we find in every natural disaster, including COVID, your viability is vital to everyone else's ability to function and adapt. That's why our consulting and people-centered solutions are designed to keep you open and strong in the 1.5-to-5°C economy we will have, not the 2°C most people cling to as the worst case.
We're the first group in the world to integrate climate science and behavior science in a model that counters the human biases and organizational roadblocks that keep teams from embracing truth and taking the action needed, emboldened by a real (not false) Hope Taxonomy and empowered with the knowledge and tools they need to ensure you're ready for anything and never, ever fall short.
In a post-1.5°C economy, value happens when, a) you become one of the companies that adapts this way and prospers, while competitors procrastinate, and b) you go beyond your own walls and join or lead the adaptation movement in your industry, community, city and world — the latter through the Paris Agreement's impassioned call for total adaptation (articles 7 & 8). Because resilience is interdependent. We sink or swim together. And if you're reading this, we're quite certain you'd rather swim. So let's go.
Financial markets and government mandates are pushing you to assess and disclose your climate risks. The Biden climate team is pursuing a whole-of-government strategy, matched by America Is All In's whole-of-society approach, both sure to spark a new level of adaptation ambition everywhere. And then there's the innovation front to define the future. Welcome to:
That is precisely what President Biden's January 27 Executive Order on Climate Change seeks to do, cascade climate action — in our realm, adaptation and resilience — across the entire economy and even around the world, and we're thrilled to help. Here's the key quote:
“It is the policy of my Administration to organize and deploy the full capacity of its agencies to implement a government-wide approach that increases resilience to the impacts of climate change in every sector of our economy, marshaling the creativity, courage, and capital necessary to make our Nation resilient in the face of this threat.”
This is transformative, and it's not just the federal government. The adaptation cascade is accelerating at the state and local levels, as well, and in countries around the world. As it becomes increasingly clear to scientists that climate change will highly likely not be solved, attention has shifted to the adaptation sections of the Paris Agreement, and we, for one, are looking for clients and players to join that conversation — to raise our collective voice to usher in the innovations and investments that will define that future we all have in COMMON.
That is the purpose of Cascade, at once a solution offered by COMMON Future — to work with you in moving the entire planet in this direction — and a campaign to get the message out in multiple ways. Stay tuned for the launch, and if you have any questions or suggestions, don't hesitate to reach out.
