WHY IT MATTERS
The threat of climate change to everyone on the planet and our future generations is real and undeniable. It is already disrupting national economies and affecting lives, weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. The vulnerable people in our society are being affected the most. However, through education, innovation and adherence to our climate commitments, we can make the necessary changes to protect the planet, modernise our infrastructure, create new jobs and promote greater prosperity across the globe.
