The Connection Between Climate Change And Equity

The Connection Between Climate Change And Equity
Climate change poses the greatest threat to those least responsible for it, including low-income and marginalized communities. So as we transition to a net-zero economy and build back better, it’s critical that we do it in a way that shares the opportunities and benefits that climate action presents with every sector of our population. Let’s discuss why it’s imperative for companies to build their climate action plans with equity as a key component, understanding that we can’t win the fight against the climate crisis unless we consider climate equity as part of the solution.
