“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors. We borrow it from our children.”
– Native American Proverb
Emission reduction targets pledged by countries are not enough to put us on track for a secure climate, according to science. We don’t have time to wait. Every person and every business has an opportunity to take accountability for their climate impact and support the reduction of global carbon emissions.
How can I take action?
We all have a role to play in the fight against climate change. Your actions, however small, can have a profound impact when combined with thousands of others. By being conscious of the choices you make and their effect on the environment, you can not only reduce your own carbon footprint but also build demand for more Climate+ policies, practices and products around the world.
Taking action on climate change starts with knowing your climate impact. You should then make efforts to reduce that impact as much as you can. Finally, support Gold Standard Climate+ projects, which not only cut carbon but also deliver life-changing benefits to vulnerable communities and help conserve local ecosystems.
Spread the word!
We encourage you to inspire even more people to take action against climate change.
