To ensure a liveable future and limit the increase in global temperatures to 1.5°C, businesses must play their part and work to urgently reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
By signing the Climate Action Pledge, and setting and striving to achieve ambitious GHG reduction targets, Northern Ireland organisations can demonstrate their commitment and willingness to collaborate to address this critical issue.
By signing the Pledge, signatory organisations commit to reduce their absolute scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by either 30% or 50% by 2030; and to work towards measuring and reporting their scope 3 GHG emissions. The chosen base year must be 2015 or thereafter.
If your organisation does not measure its GHG emissions yet or you’re not sure what scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3 is, we have the resources to help. Email us a at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how we can support you, or take a look at the resources section below.
Still not sure if your organisation is ready to sign the Climate Action Pledge? Take a look at our Climate Action Pledge Flow Chart to help you figure out your next steps, or how to get started.
