Thus far, 2,568 businesses & organisations have pledged to join the Not Business As Usual alliance which takes place today and we are also taking a stance on this matter that is super close to our hearts.
We are part of a group of Australian & global businesses pledging to support worker participation in the climate strike on September 20th.
The number one reason people won’t strike is because of work. Every business can do something, whether it’s closing the doors, having a meeting free day, allowing a long lunch, or sending an email to make it clear teams will not be penalised for taking a few hours off. The reality is that while it’s not up to the private sector to lead climate action, we can do our part in this first of a kind moment.
Why the strike matters
The global climate strike is happening today Friday 20 September, three days before the UN Climate Action summit.
Millions of school children around the world are calling on adults to join them in the streets and send a message to governments – now is the time for urgent and meaningful climate action. The bigger the turnout, the stronger the pressure on the government.
