THE CLIMATE CAREERS COMMITMENT
Climate change is the challenge of our generation. To achieve a sustainable future, people from all walks of life and corners of the world will need to unite to create solutions that are inclusive and effective - this presents an incredible opportunity.
The youngest generations around the world will both experience the impacts of climate change and be responsible for continuing to reduce emissions and create global sustainability, at the same time as they respond to the climate change’s negative and positive impacts on an ongoing basis.
The Climate Careers Commitment will empower you to be an integral part of this solution. By signing on you are committing to be part of the wave of people who be implementing holistic solutions to climate change no matter what carer path you choose to follow. You are joining people from around the world who are all working to make our economies and societies sustainable, and equitable now and into the future.
I commit to doing everything possible over the course of my career and in my work to be part of the climate solution. I will:
Take action to help the world meet or beat the Paris Agreement’s target of limiting global temperature rise to 2°
Do my part to transition to a low carbon energy system and encourage the organizations I work with and for to do the same
Ensure that solutions are as inclusive and equitable as possible across the globe.
Educate colleagues in the company I work for on climate change and how climate action can positively impact our business or profession
I will work to further this commitment in the areas where I do or can have influence. This includes in my workplace, in my industry, in my community, and in how I vote.
