Climate Action & Carbon Footprint | Business in the Community Northern Ireland

Our goal is to challenge businesses to reduce their impact on the environment, operating with sustainability as a core principle.


Biodiversity is the whole variety of all living things on earth, from habitats where our plants and animals live, to individual organisms. The Business and Biodiversity Charter provides a framework to help businesses in Northern Ireland engage with biodiversity, develop their biodiversity initiatives, and provides external recognition for companies involved.

Business Action on Climate and the Climate Action Pledge

Business Action on Climate is a collaborative climate campaign that puts Northern Ireland businesses at the forefront of action on the climate emergency.

The Climate Action Programme helps organisations in Northern Ireland to reduce their scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The Climate Action Pledge is an integral part of the campaign that challenges and supports businesses to set and achieve ambitious GHG reduction targets, publicly demonstrating commitment to address this critical issue, as part of their race to net zero.

We offer accredited Climate Literacy Training, designed to raise awareness of the core elements of Carbon Literacy, as well as explore the opportunities, risks and challenges that climate change will present.
