Climate change is one of the greatest challenges we face as a society. We are witnessing an increase in extreme weather events around the world as a result of rising greenhouse gas emissions.
We can’t stop climate change altogether, but by acting now we can prevent it getting much worse. More companies than ever are shifting to renewable energy and reducing emissions. You can take action too. Perhaps the most important way is by using your voice to ask governments to prioritise ambitious policies that will help everyone reduce emissions. But this can take time to have an impact.
We can all make immediate changes such as travelling more sustainably, saving energy at home, adopting a more plant-based diet and switching to green energy.
