At GAP, we’re excited to announce our new partnerships gearing us up for ongoing climate and other disasters well ahead of hurricane season. Through the platform of Climate Day, we saw international leaders combating climate change with innovative company practices and leaders in mass care response to climate disasters in the same room—effectively tackling the problem from both ends!
If one thing has excited me this past month, it’s been seeing climate policy take center stage in the platforms of numerous candidates on the campaign trail and watching the companies in our network enthusiastically embrace the next frontier -- climate policy.
We are excited to share the link and information for our annual update request for all committed companies! This is our primary mechanism for tracking how companies are progressing against Climate Collaborative commitments! We have built it out to be as easy to complete as possible, and to avoid duplicating other reporting you are doing. Please see below for common questions you may have as you fill it out.
You can find and fill out the update here.
If you attended Climate Day this year, we hope you didn't miss out on our Resource Fair at the back of the room, where we tried to bring together key partners that can help companies go deeper in their climate goal-setting and actions.
Two years into the Climate Collaborative’s work, the natural products industry truly feels energized. I felt this palpably a few days ago at Climate Day, from the way people stood up one after the other to commit to climate action during the session to the sea of commitments companies proudly displayed at their booths to the tenor of people’s remarks throughout the day.
In the lead up to Climate Day this year, we asked for videos sharing the positive impact and progress you're seeing in your climate work. We received a tremendous number of videos from companies across the industry showcasing your work. Enjoy the compilation of great work throughout the industry!
