A recent PricewaterhouseCoopers report warns companies that global temperatures are projected to rise 6 degrees Celsius by the end of the century. The report focuses on carbon intensity, defined as carbon emissions per unit of gross domestic product in major economies. According to the report, carbon intensity needs to decrease by an average of 5.1 percent per year for the next 39 consecutive years to limit global warming to the international goal of 2 degrees Celsius, a rate of reduction that has never been achieved. The report predicts more unpredictable and extreme weather and disruptions to market and supply chains as a result of climate change. It recommends that companies create buffers, or margins, that enable them to absorb shocks from issues such as resource scarcity, and that they develop greater adaptive measures to respond to conditions such as population growth, natural resource constraints, water use, energy demand, and climate change.
