What are the challenges of climate change?

Global warming has increased tremendously with the increased use of fossil fuels, deforestation and livestock farming. The consequences are a significant burden on our environment and our natural livelihoods. If we're all prepared to take action, we can protect the climate together.

Thinking ahead

We're changing the way we do things today to create a better tomorrow – we're supporting the shift to a climate-smart world. Our climate strategy underlines our commitment to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals on affordable and clean energy and on climate action.
