Journey to Carbon Positive
01 Journey to Carbon Positive
Working closely with industry and NGOs, this Community focuses on the shift towards cleaner, smarter energy. Carbon positive is when an acitvity goes beyond being carbon neutral and actually removes carbondioxide from the planet leaving a positive impact on the environment. The Community’s targets are closely aligned with industry needs, addressing issues and overcoming challenges along the path of net zero carbon emissions.
Disaster preparedness and management
02 Disaster preparedness and management
If the global Covid-19 Pandemic and recurring natural disasters in the past few years have taught us anything, it is that we need to be more prepared, resilient and quick to respond to catastrophic situations. This community aims to do that with global knowledge and resource sharing and go beyond just the initial phase where we actually help affected communities build up again.
Green Hydrogen Energy
03 Green Hydrogen Energy
At the current rate, the world is not on track to limit the average global temperature increase to 1.5°C. We need to take deeper actions to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. Green hydrogen - produced with renewable electricity through electrolysis - is a promising solution. This community is a global powerhouse of experts and stakeholders who share specialized knowledge and capabilities on how to produce, store and use green hydrogen along with discussing policies, safety and regulations needed to make it more reliable.
Promote Green Manufacturing
04 Promote Green Manufacturing
Concentrating on production processes that limit pollution and create less overall production waste, green manufacturing can contribute tremendously in controlling climate change. It uses everything from production design to alteration of existing processes to facilitation of part replacement to increased durability for achieving its goals. The Global DLC Social Impact Community collaborates with research organisations, agencies, NGOs and within our own community of Design Thinking to help the manufacturing industry cut down its carbon footprint for a better, greener world.
With increasing efforts to contain the impact of global warming, the challenge is to focus on specific problems with out-of-the-box solutions. The challenge is to get organisations working in silos to work in tandem towards common Climate Action goals.
Who can help
Private Companies and professionals with expertise in Climate Change, Carbon and Natural Resources Management, NGOs and NPOs involved in the field of Climate Action at a research or grassroot action level
What can you do
Help provide information and knowledge to the Community to run Programmes in Chapter Cities, mitigate the impact and risks of forthcoming natural disasters and help smaller Companies adapt some of the measures towards Zero Carbon emission targets.
Out of the 135 countries pledging carbon neutrality, only 66 have put a target year on their policies and laws according to data by Net Zero Tracker. And we don’t know if their targets will cover CO2 only or all GHGs. Act now to save the planet. #DLCSocialImpact

The Price of Climate Inaction
Webinar on The Human and Economic Costs of Climate Inaction. We’ll explore how delaying bold action on climate comes with a deep price for a developing economy
Date & Time:
The Hydrogen Economy
Economies around the world are looking at Hydrogen to decarbonize their energy systems and become net zero. What are the next steps to deploy Hydrogen with urgency? How can developing nations set aside heavy-carbon energy and move to effective hydrogen from renewable sources? Discuss innovations, ideas and case studies at this Webinar on the benefits and challenges in making hydrogen economies.
Date & Time:
Heavy industry like cement, chemicals and steel contribute largely to global carbon emissions. The cost of harder cuts to control emissions is high and progress to date has been slow. How does industry introduce higher standards of green manufacturing going ahead? Join the webinar to discuss breakthrough alternative emissions-reducing innovations that are gaining traction and investments globally
Date & Time:
To accelerate impact towards the United Nations’ SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) – the world’s to-do list.
DLC believes that the UN SDGs provide the most holistic and universal framework to measure impact.
By laying the focus on SDGs we quantify and report social impact with a global measure of success
Irrespective of whether you are a DLC Member or not, anyone keen to volunteer time / effort / resources for DLC Social Impact causes is welcome to sign up.
With the aim to bring about positive social change, DLC maps and facilitates partnerships between its global community of Entrepreneurs, Professionals & Young Leaders with carefully vetted NGOs and NPOs. DLC is present in 15 Chapters in 7 Countries. Every Chapter has mutually independent DLC Social Impact Cause Committees to tackle any/all the 54 causes identified under 20 core areas
