Titan offers a range of innovative; low-impact and cost-effective product solutions designed to protect soil, water, and air, reduce carbon footprint, and preserve natural resources.
Being involved in civil infrastructure projects in a range of sectors, our work, and the work of our customers is essential for the development and maintenance of the modern infrastructure that, we, as a society rely on every day. Our climate is changing; this brings challenges to the work we all do and the way we can do it.  Now, more than ever, we must collectively focus on looking after the future of our planet and working towards a shared goal of doing better.
We see BizforClimate as a conduit to educate and raise awareness about global climate change issues while acting as a valuable public resource. By supporting BizforClimate and its Climate Action Pledge, Titan is taking steps in encouraging climate change mitigation and adaptation in the civil construction industry.
On this note, I’m happy to share with you a link to the recording of a virtual roundtable event that we, Titan, hosted this February on the topic of ‘Sustainability & Climate Change Trends in Infrastructure Construction’.
Nearly 400 industry professionals signed up for this virtual event featuring industry experts who discussed the importance of integrating climate adaptation, resiliency, and mitigation into practice in the fields of civil, geotechnical, and water resourcing engineering. It provided interesting and diverse perspectives on a very real issues that resonate with BizforClimate’s goal of advancing climate solutions at scale."

SPECIAL REPORT: ‘Defuse the Climate Time Bomb’ with Net-Zero by 2040, Guterres Urges G20

UN Secretary-General António Guterres welcomed a major, new climate science report as a “how-to guide to defuse the climate time bomb”, minutes after the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a dire warning urging countries to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions before a 1.5°C future slips out of reach.

“Humanity is on thin ice, and that ice is melting fast,” Guterres told an IPCC news conference in a seven-minute recorded address. A 1.5°C future is still “achievable, but it will take a quantum leap in climate action,” he added.
