Building a sustainable future

Time is running out.

Unless we put climate action and the health of our biodiversity at the heart of everything we do, there are potentially irreversible outcomes.  This is because economic prosperity is deeply connected to the state of the natural world: when it suffers, we suffer; when it thrives, we thrive.

Avoiding the worst impacts of climate change means taking action now to limit emissions and protect our fragile biodiversity.  This is a problem too big for any one group to tackle alone. We all have a role to play in building a sustainable future.

No action is not an option as climate change could shrink global GDP by up to 18% in the next 30 years.
