The Climate Action Pledge is part of the Business in the Community Business Action on Climate campaign which challenges businesses to take action on the climate crisis. The campaign puts Northern Ireland businesses at the forefront of action on the climate emergency.
The Pledge is a driver for business to take action on the climate emergency, working to ensure a liveable future and limit the increase in global temperatures well below 2°C.
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.
Kieran Harding, Managing Director, BITC, said:
“Signing the Climate Action Pledge is an act of public accountability that proves to an organisation’s stakeholders, customers and employees that they are taking ambitious action on the climate crisis”.
“To make a real difference, businesses need to collaborate and act now. We are delighted that Veolia has joined our growing group of Northern Ireland organisations that have made a public declaration to take action urgently.”
The Pledge is a cornerstone of the Business Action on Climate campaign, an initiative of the responsible business network Business in the Community (BITC), which inspires and supports organisations to act as a force for good, convening business to tackle key societal and environmental issues.
Sinead Patton, Regional Director said:
“Veolia is proud to have signed the Climate Action Pledge and to have publicly committed to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. Business has an important role to play in tackling the climate crisis and I look forward to collaborating with other businesses in Northern Ireland as part of the Climate Action Pledge initiative”.
