Declare

Declare now for a safe climate

Words matter. The pen is mightier than the sword, and our industries hold great influence over the messages that reach the public and the projects that gain social licence. For too long our industries have been helping companies that produce greenhouse gas pollution by furthering their interests and protecting their reputations.

Society has the solutions to the climate crisis but lacks the political and social will to change. So, together, we must change the climate narrative.

Organisations

Declare that your organisation will not support any activities, organisations or individuals that promote the growth of fossil fuels, the continuation of high greenhouse gas pollution as ‘business as usual’ and deception, distraction or spin around science or climate actions.

We declare:
  • To maintain a safe climate we must dramatically reduce greenhouse pollution by 2030 and reach net zero emissions by 2050.
  • Our work will not support any activities, organisations or individuals that promote:
    • the growth of fossil fuels
    • the continuation of high greenhouse gas pollution as ‘business as usual’
    • deception, distraction or spin around science or climate actions.
  • We will use our networks to support and promote climate action.

Individuals

Choose Declare or Act – or even better, choose both.

Declare

I declare my work as a communicator will not support any activities, organisations or individuals that promote:

  • the growth of fossil fuels
  • the continuation of high greenhouse gas pollution as ‘business as usual’
  • deception, distraction or spin around science or climate actions.
Act

I will:

  • Actively raise awareness of the climate emergency and the urgent need for action
  • Share stories of success as individuals, organisations, and governments make positive climate choices, building hope and optimism in our collective ability to provide a healthy, liveable planet for future generations
  • Encourage others to sign the Communicators Declare pledge
  • Reduce my carbon footprint and live a more sustainable life.
