Climate Emergency Action Plan

What does the climate emergency mean for your business?

In a planet decimated by the climate crisis the world economy will not look like it does now. 

There will be large scale destruction of property, mass movement of people and markets will collapse. There will be no more doing business. It will be surviving at best. 

In recognition of this businesses should look at declaring a Climate Emergency and setting a plan to be carbon neutral by 2030. This means measuring your carbon footprint and setting a plan as well as looking at all of your internal policies to address some of the wider, systemic problems that we have in our current world economy. 

Yes...

Even if you are a business of just 1 person, your impact needs to be measured and offset in this decade.

What is a climate emergency?

climate emergency declaration or declaring a state of climate emergency, is a strategy used by organisations to acknowledge humanity is in a climate emergency. The first such declaration was made in December 2016. Since then over 1250 local government and 25 countries have made climate emergency declarations (as of 5 January 2020).

Once an organisation makes a declaration the next step for the declaring government to set priorities to mitigate climate change, prior to ultimately entering a state of emergency or equivalent.

In declaring a climate emergency, an organisation admits that global warming exists and that the measures taken up to this point are not enough to limit the changes brought by it. The decision stresses the need for the organisation to devise measures that try and stop human-caused global warming. 

The declarations can be made on different levels, for example at a national or local government level, and they can differ in depth and detail in their guidelines. The term climate emergency does not only describe formal decisions, but also includes actions to avert climate change. This is supposed to justify and focus them. The specific term "emergency" is used to assign priority to the topic, and to generate a mindset of urgency.

The term “climate emergency” has been promoted by climate activists and pro-climate action politicians to add a sense of urgency for responding to a long-term problem

Are we really in a climate emergency?

The above graphics show the 'overshoot' in using our planets resources. We are breaking through almost every barrier that we have, literally destroying our planet. 

Next to that we have a view of our economy that shows the 'shortfall' in all sectors. Even in the developed west, rampant inequality in wealth is tearing apart our society piece by piece. 

Both of these areas are closely linked to the climate emergency.
