Business declares a climate emergency

As business leaders we declare a climate, ecological & planetary emergency

We commit to tell the truth on the climate, ecological and planetary emergency, and to inspire urgent action and debate.

We celebrate and support all the companies who declare and want to inspire others on this path.

We use our influence to engage business leaders who want to understand what it means to declare and we challenge them to set their own targets and actions.

We position ourselves as challengers and urge faster action than the Paris agreement.*

*As called for by students, central bankers, policy makers, leaders in culture, doctors and engineers

What we bring to the business community:
