The Issue

If it’s melted, it’s ruined. It’s true for ice cream and it’s true for the planet. From drought and wildfires to rising sea levels and powerful hurricanes, the devastating effects of a warming planet are not just affecting polar bears, but also people.

What can we do about it?

We know what we need to do and we have the technology to do it. That’s a powerful, positive message that we believe in at Ben & Jerry’s.

Every pint of ice cream we make produces roughly 1kg (2lbs) of greenhouse gases. We’ve worked hard to reduce our emissions and adopted a new climate goal across our entire value chain.

But it’s going to take more than just the actions of individual companies and people to fight climate change. That’s why we’ve developed our Global Climate Movement to call on leaders to support a rapid transition to the clean energy economy of the future.

We need everyone to put pressure on the people in power. Sign our petition and urge national, local and international leaders to keep the global temperature rise below the unacceptably dangerous 1.5°C level.
