Biodiversity Trilogy

Healthy communities rely on thriving ecosystems. Biodiversity loss disrupts the delicate balance of our life support systems, directly impacting our health and well-being. This interconnectedness suggests that any environmental disturbance reverberates through our lives. Ensuring the continued provision of essential ecosystem services that support human health relies on the preservation and conservation of biodiversity. Broadpeak works […]

Climate Tipping Point Series

Coral reefs cover less than 1% of the Earth’s surface, yet sustain 25% of marine biodiversity and directly provide support to over 500 million people worldwide. Coral reefs, among several other coastal ecosystems, represent one of the most crucial ways oceans contribute to climate change adaptation. However, they are susceptible to reaching a tipping point, […]

Circular Economy Trilogy

Since 1990, the use of material resources has experienced a ten-fold increase and is set to double again by 2030. We have largely overstepped the planetary boundaries, with 6 of the 9 boundaries having been transgressed. At the same time, according to the 2023 Circularity Gap, global circularity has fallen from 9.1% in 2018 to […]

Circular Economy Trilogy

Nature cannot naturally break down plastic waste. Each plastic item, unless burned or reused, will persist for centuries beyond our lifetime. While 60% of plastics have lifespans of less than five years, only 9% are recycled. There is a pressing need for a comprehensive strategy to establish a circular system for plastics, which must operate […]

Circular Economy Trilogy

Each second, one truckload of garments is landfilled or burnt. Worldwide, there is an abundance of clothing available to attire the forthcoming six generations. Less than 1% of clothing undergoes recycling, while the majority is discarded. Recognizing the potential to transition towards circular systems in this sector will require enabling policy frameworks and investments but […]

Blue Economy Trilogy

Oceans constitute the planet’s largest ecosystem, covering 70% of the Earth’s surface and hosting 80% of all life. Oceans also generate 50% of the oxygen we breathe. While the oceans’ biodiversity is essential to global economic growth, SDG 14 focusing on ocean conservation remains the least funded. Transitioning to a blue economy is imperative to […]

Blue Economy Trilogy

The oceans contain the largest untapped source of renewable energy, with offshore areas harbouring around 80% of the earth’s wind resources. Capturing this energy could enhance economically sustainable long-term development and play a pivotal role in the world’s emerging blue economy. Harnessing marine renewable energy to its full potential is also crucial in the transition […]

Blue Economy Trilogy

More than 90% of the planet’s marine stocks are fully exploited, overexploited, or depleted. Yet, oceans serve as the primary source of protein for over 50% of the population in least-developed countries. Furthermore, the sustainability of fisheries is crucial for global food security, supporting the livelihoods of 10% of the world’s population. Broadpeak works with industry […]

Impact Fund Manager Series

The fight against climate change will be won or lost in Asia. And Asia is experiencing a rate of warming exceeding the global average. Between 1991 and 2022, its warming trend was nearly twice as high as the trend observed between 1961 and 1990. Moreover, Asia is the most disaster-prone region globally. The climate risk […]

Gender Equality Trilogy

Women face a 14-fold higher risk of mortality or injury during climate-related natural disasters compared to men. They represent 80% of people relocated by climate change. Climate change is not gender-neutral and women are disproportionately impacted. It is essential to acknowledge that women can play a pivotal role as agents of change in the battle […]
