Acting on the climate crisis is still high on the agenda. Businesses are, now more than ever, expected to play their part to keep the planet liveable. But it can feel overwhelming and difficult to know where to start.

In this call to action webinar, Géraldine Noé, Head of Environment at Business in the Community NI, will be joined by climate expert Lea Fink and the BITC Climate Champions to present the Business Action on Climate campaign that inspires, challenges and supports all businesses in NI to take action on the climate emergency.

As part of the campaign, we are asking businesses to sign the Climate Action Pledge, a public commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. To change everything we need everyone.

The webinar is suitable for anyone with environment or corporate responsibility aspects to their role, and senior staff members interested in learning more about how their organisation can take action to address to climate emergency. Members and non-member are welcome to attend.
