Our Approach to Climate Change

Climate change is seen as one of the biggest threats of our generation, requiring global action to both mitigate and adapt for the future.

Everyone can play a role in mitigating the impact of climate change. Companies, also need to play their part, to support worldwide efforts to keep temperatures below, or as close to 1.5 degrees Celsius of warming above pre-industrial levels as possible.  Expert reports have shown the damage, particularly to developing countries and vulnerable communities, if warming increases above this scenario.

ASM’s approach to Climate Change has four foundational elements:

  1.  ASM’s role as a key contributor to a sustainable low-carbon economy
  2.  Greenhouse gas emission reduction and offsets
  3.  Evaluating, assessing, and managing the physical impacts of climate change
  4.  Support and use of the recommendations from the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)
