Following on from our previous post about businesses declaring a #climateemergency – our friends at B Lab UK have recently published a handy guide: How to declare a climate emergency – a playbook for business.
Charmian Love, Co-founder & Board Member of B Lab UK, and Chris Turner, Executive Director of B Lab UK explain…
“We believe business will play a critical role in enabling the transition that is so clearly needed — transforming the economic system that has lead to the Climate Emergency. Within business we will find the necessary capital, the knowledge, the ingenuity, the networks, the technology and the courage.
B Corps are leading the way when it comes to transforming business into a force for good, and there is a tremendous opportunity for B Corps to inspire and empower others by doing what they do best — leading the way. That is why we are excited to launch a Playbook to guide business through the process of declaring a Climate Emergency.
This is about more than just making a statement. It is about putting in place radically ambitious goals which are meaningful in the context of the Climate Emergency. It is about taking urgent action and being held accountable. And it is about being highly practical and recognising that the time for talking is over. Today we need to act. Today we need a new level of leadership.”
