We have been warned by leading scientists around the globe that within 12 years, global warming must be kept at a maximum of 1.5 degrees or we will face dire consequences.
Beyond this 1.5 degree threshold, there will be significant worsening of drought, flood and extreme heat, which will impact on many people around the globe.
Urgent and unprecedented changes are needed to ensure this target is reached, or moreover kept under this threshold, which will put pressure on The Paris Agreement. This is an agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Aims of The Paris Agreement:
Restricting Warming to 1.5C – What would the difference make?
Scientists found that restricting global warming to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels would have the following positive impact on the planet:
We still have time to take action to reduce global warming, but we are very close to the brink.
We all need to be taking a stance for positive change, whether that is using your car less, looking at more sustainable ways to heat your home, flying less, having smaller families….we can all do our bit.
As a company we have invested significant time and resources in creating stoves, that are Ecodesign ready.
Ecodesign ready means you need to burn less wood, much more efficiently for the same output, which is good for the environment and a positive step towards helping reduce the devastating impact of global warming.
