Seven Steps for Climate Action

Ensure your business model is climate proof and contributes to a future where people can thrive.

This resource, Seven Steps for Climate Action, sets out how businesses can deliver a just and fair transition to a resilient, net-zero future. Taking the steps will help organisations ensure their business model is climate-proof and contribute to a future where people and nature can thrive. Taking the steps will also support in creating value and enhance the prosperity of employees, customers, suppliers and communities.


Challenge 2030

In the wake of COVID-19 and floods, fires and heatwaves across the world, it is now more important than ever that businesses ensure that climate action is delivering benefits for people and nature.

Business in the Community’s (BITC) Challenge 2030 campaign calls on businesses to:

  • build climate resilience
  • reduce carbon emissions
  • bring net-zero targets closer to 2030
  • take an inclusive approach to climate action.

Business in the Community and climate action

By 2030 the UK needs to have delivered on its commitment to limit global warming to 1.5°C, something many consider only possible by achieving a net-zero carbon economy. It will be companies that see tackling climate change as part of future-proofing their business that prosper in this changing world.
