Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is likely to surpass 3 degrees centigrade this century. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.
There's a busy month ahead for planet Earth, with the COP 25 in Madrid from 2-13 December and the UICN World Climate Day on 8 December. But beyond the meeting schedule, there is growing acceptance by our institutions, industries and citizens of the urgent need for action on climate disruption. Thales recognises it has a role to play, and is raising the tempo of its environmental protection programme with a new plan of action for a low-carbon future.
We are an expert partner for businesses, governments and organisations around the world – supporting them in realising ambitious plans for a sustainable, low carbon future. We believe that environmental sustainability and economic prosperity can go hand-in-hand as we address the climate crisis.
