As we rebuild our economies, businesses will be crucial for a science-led, clean & resilient recovery, and to accelerate the global transition to net zero emissions. Alok Sharma, COP26 President
2020 has been a year of extreme disruption. Coronavirus has uprooted the definition of business as usual and has irrevocably shifted how individuals, companies and nations operate. Swift and safe recovery from this pandemic is no doubt a top priority for many – but one that should not be separated from tackling the climate emergency. We cannot tackle one crisis and not the other. Climate action must not be paused.
We are committed to helping businesses achieve their sustainability goals during COVID and beyond and have been heartened to start so many sustainability projects with new clients over this period. This World Environment Day we have partnered with our clients BT, CMS, Encirc and Vodafone to showcase their climate ambition and how, despite disruption, they have not lost momentum.
