Revealing business climate action in Latin America

About the report

Thanks to funding received from the Scotiabank Net Zero Fund, Libélula and the nexos+1 climate action platform developed the Latin American Business Climate Action Report.

This project enables a greater understanding of the climate maturity level, challenges and opportunities of business climate action and commitments in 9 countries in the region.

Findings on Latin American business climate maturity

Business climate action is the combination of coordinated actions that a company deploys as part of its business strategy to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and increase resilience and its capacity to adapt to climate-related impacts.

The Report compiles information from 109 companies from 9 Latin American countries, gathered through a proprietary Libélula tool which assesses climate maturity. This tool measured their maturity across 6 dimensions based on the four Race to Zero associated criteria (Pledge, Plan, Proceed and Publish), as well as the additional dimensions of Purpose and Governance.

Purpose and strategy:

The business strategy incorporates its commitment to managing its triple-bottom-line impact on the planet.


Explicit commitment of carbon neutrality by 2050, aligned with science.


Plan with goals, processes and tools for reaching carbon neutrality in the short-, medium- and long-term.


Consistent implementation that delivers progressive results against the strategy towards net zero.


Public reporting of business climate action through official reporting platforms.


The institutional conditions are present to enable business climate action.

Key findings at the regional and individual country levels (click on the flags to access individual country findings).

In addition to this evaluation, 9 case studies of climatically advanced companies were documented to understand their initiatives and to serve as an example for other companies in the region.
