I'm an employee, how do I engage my business?

Contact us and we will happily share our experience. The resources page offers a useful selection of material. We recommend talking to those around you and in your sphere of influence initially, gaining support for declaring will help you to raise the question with your immediate manager or Head of Sustainability, or your CEO.

Do you check what actions people have taken?

We ask companies to share their Climate Emergency Plans within 6 months of declaring. Companies are asked to be transparent on the targets they are setting and their progress towards them, as shown on link. If actions are not being taken, we will review your presence on this website.

Is there a way to connect with other supporters

We hold webinars and events to connect businesses to share best practice and progress in confidential forums. Do contact us if you wish to make contact with other companies on our email info@businessdeclares.com.

Can I support without declaring?

Yes, we are keen to grow our network to ensure we get the widest reach and influence for action.

How long will Business Declares exist?

We bring networks and businesses together in pursuit of the common purpose, such that talking about and taking action on climate and ecological breakdown becomes mainstream right across the business sector and the work of Business Declares is no longer needed.

How do I sign up as a supporter?

Please review the details here and supply information on your plans. We will confirm when you have been added to the site. If you wish to discuss how you join and how to start the journey towards declaring please contact us on info@businessdeclares.com

Does it cost to sign up?

No, however we are a volunteer organisation and would appreciate donations of time, people or contributions to support events.

Can any company join?

We cover all sectors and celebrate action across industry.
We do reserve the right as an organisation to not allow businesses to declare with us, if they are significantly contributing to global heating through their core business model unless they are completely re-thinking their business model. Organisations who are involved in activities which cause great ecological harm and are not making significant plans to change would also not be able to join.

What is the link to Extinction Rebellion?

We understand the need for protest on climate breakdown both by youth and adults. We have been inspired by the leadership shown by Extinction Rebellion in raising the profile of the climate emergency and initially started this campaign as a result of protest in April in London, UK. We are a separate independent organisation focused on working with business.
