Business Action on Climate | Business in the Community

Your business can take action on the climate emergency

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

Together with the CBI, FSB, IoD and NI Chamber, and with the support of the Department of Agriculture, Environment, and Rural Affairs and Department of Economy we are calling on organisations of all sizes and from all sectors to sign the Climate Action Pledge and commit to take action on the biggest challenge facing our planet, with the support and guidance of Business in the Community.


The Climate Action Pledge

Signing the Climate Action Pledge is a public commitment by an organisation to reduce its absolute scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by either 30% or 50% by 2030; and to work towards measuring and reporting scope 3 GHG emissions.

By signing the Climate Action Pledge, and setting and striving to achieve ambitious GHG reduction targets, Northern Ireland organisations can demonstrate willingness to collaborate to address this critical issue, as part of their race to net zero.

Find out more about signing the Climate Action Pledge and download the Pledge document and resources here.
