Tapping Your Climate Superpower: Join Your Fellow Businesses in the #Call4ClimateNOW Campaign

With the recent release of the powerful IPCC report, there is no longer any doubt of human caused climate change.  Inside Climate News writes of the report’s conclusions that “This summer’s extremes are only a mild preview of the decades ahead” and that “no part of the planet will be spared”. But perhaps the report’s most powerful finding is that we still have a small window of opportunity to act to stop things from getting even worse. As Laurence Tubiana, one of the architects of the Paris Agreement said this week in response to the UN IPCC Report, “Scientists did their job, it is time for leaders to do theirs.”

The next six weeks offer the most important opportunity in a generation to pass important climate legislation to put our nation on a path to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

If you have ever considered using your powerful voice as a business, now is the moment.

Join #Call4ClimateNOW: Businesses Raising Our Voices Together

Businesses from across the U.S. are joining #Call4ClimateNOW to encourage the American public to call our nation's lawmakers NOW and urge them to address the threat of our changing climate. 

The campaign was created by the Climate Collaborative with Fossil Free Media but has grown to include partners B Lab, 1% for the Planet, Snowsports Industries America (SIA), and the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC), representing businesses from many sectors, sizes, and geographies from across the nation. 

This fall businesses will reach out to their stakeholders, such as their consumers and employees, to encourage them to call their Senators and Representatives to ask them to support bold climate action and to invest at the scale of the crisis NOW.
