Business in a Climate-Compatible World

BSR catalyzes private-sector action on climate change in two ways: by helping companies reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and by empowering business to enhance its adaptive capacity and broader societal resilience in the face of inevitable climate impacts.

Our approach includes translating the best available climate knowledge for the private sector, shaping policy environments conducive to business leadership, working with companies directly to understand climate risk and build climate change strategies for resilience across the value chain, and facilitating collaborative initiatives that allow companies to work together with other stakeholders in pursuit of climate ambition.
