Professional Bodies Climate Action Charter
Earlier in the week we became one of the original supporters of the Professional Bodies Climate Action Charter, alongside eleven other professional bodies – in total representing more than 400,000 professionals – and a further 300 member organisations. It commits us to support members to prioritise both the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement in their work.
Dr John Broderick, Royal Society of Chemistry Policy Advisor on Climate Change and Sustainability said: “Our community has highlighted the importance of climate change – our members want to see their professional body act alongside governments, businesses and other organisations to play our part in combating a global issue with implications for every one of us.
"We’re glad to take up that challenge, to convene the power of our international community and to empower our members to do more.”
