Take Action

More companies are committing to leadership on climate action than at any time in history. They are taking action because doing so offers tremendous opportunities for creating growth, jobs and prosperity in a low-carbon economy.

And more commitments to climate action will be announced in the coming months, following the adoption of the historic Paris Agreement.

We encourage companies to commit to one or more of these initiatives.

Why take action?

We Mean Business gives companies and investors a common platform to act and be recognized for bold leadership on climate change. Companies can commit to one—or all—of a set of innovative and practical climate initiatives, and they can work to scale low-carbon solutions to meet specific technology challenges to tackle climate change. 

Together, these commitments - all of which are automatically fed into the UNFCCC's NAZCA platform - will make a huge positive impact. Throughout the coming year, We Mean Business will send a strong signal to governments and policymakers that businesses and investors all over the world are taking action and want smart climate policy that will scale solutions and help deliver a more prosperous and resilient future.

We Mean Business is providing companies that join the campaign a range of opportunities to be widely recognized for their leadership and be actively engaged in global climate change policy developments throughout 2017.
