Roadmap with OKR for Combatting Climate Change

Climate change is a common issue for the whole world. Fire and floods – extreme wheather events over the past months are the worst disasters we have seen. Researches show that we expect more wildfires, and the fire seasons getting longer.  In addition, according to the World Health Organization, as of the year 2030, climate change is expected to contribute to approximately 250,000 additional deaths per year, from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhea and heat stress. Issues of global warming are real and we all contribute to global warming. Can we work together to stop greenhouse gas emissions warming our planet? We want to see our goals as countries, non-Party stakeholders including cities, the private sector and individuals with OKR framework. It includes goals, methods that help us work towards our vision, enable changemakers and ensure that sustainability is integrated in everything we do.


Most important contributors are countries, their policies can make huge difference:

All Countries’ Objective: Substantially reduce global greenhouse gas emissions

Global Country OKR

Global OKRs on ConectoHub


Sub-objective  1: Keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels (pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius.)

KR 1: At least 55% cuts in greenhouse gas emissions (from 1990 levels)

Country OKR

Key Result and linked projects & tasks


Sub- objective 2: Scale up renewables and cut energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

KR 2: At least 32% share for renewable energy

KR 3: At least 32.5% improvement in energy efficiency


Cities’ responsibilities with OKR methodology:

City objective: Create buildings and infrastructure that are highly energy efficient

KR 1: At least 50 % improvement in clean, resource-efficient energy

KR 2: 100 %  zero-carbon public transport in 9 years


The main contributors to climate change are the large corporate actors. Much of the CO2 emissions come from business-driven economic activities. On the other hand, business activities can also contribute to innovation and solutions to prevent and adapt to climate change

Companies’ responsibilities with OKR methodology:

Objective: lead the change towards climate positive fashion

KR 1: 80 % of materials from recycled or more sustainable sources.

KR 2: 100 % of our cotton is organic, recycled or sourced in a more sustainable way

KR 3: 25 % reduction in packaging.


 Objective: Achieve the target of sending zero non-hazardous waste

KR 1: 92% of waste handle in distribution centres will be recycled or reused

KR 2:  9% of our total product assortment will be reused

KR 3: 70% stores have sufficient recycling systems


Objective: Financing with a positive impact on the environment and the climate

KR 1: Finance volume of around $15 million in the area of sustainable entrepreneurship

KR 2: financing volume of around $90 million in the area of energy efficiency

KR3: financing volume of around $60 million in the area of water supply and waste disposal


For a lot of people, that can come with a sense of despair: What can one person possibly do to save a world? But there are meaningful ways individuals can put pressure on corporations and policymakers to make rapid actions. When we make climate-friendly decisions it forces brands to do the same. That means consumer behavior is a huge driver of change. Secondly figuring out our own carbon emissions and how to reduce them is vital. You can calculate carbon foodprint from there.

There are things everyone can do and every positive action we take helps protect our planet. Seeing our goals and progress can make difference in our lives. Here’s your handy guide to the most effective strategies with OKR methodology:

Individuals’ OKRs responsibilities with OKR methodology:

Objective: Consume Wisely

KR1: 70 % Shop locally where possible

KR 2: Choose brands that display a ‘carbon footprint’ on their packaging.

KR 3: 70% less meat by 2030 (use plant-based protein alternatives)

KR 4: 98 %less plastic


Objective: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

KR 1: 100 % eliminate food waste

KR 2: 100 % put a product to a new use instead of throwing it away.

KR3: Find a new use for 50% of old items, that you might consider throwing away


Objective: Use transportation wisely

KR 1: Buy an electric vehicle and share your car

KR 2: Take public transportation if it’s available

KR 3: Ride a bicycle or walk when possible

KR 4: %50 less air travel


Objective: Use energy wisely

KR 1: Switch to “green power

KR 2: Replace your incandescent lightbulbs with LEDs

KR 3: Insulate older un-insulated homes


Our current actions are not enough for us to meet our target of 1.5C of warming. We need to do more and must take action now!
