We have written before about the massive significance of the upcoming climate negotiations (COP21) in Paris this December. This could be – and must be – a vital turning point in the global battle against climate change.
As part of the World Green Building Council‘s “Collective Commitment”, we are proud to have joined forces with the UK-GBC and many of its Members, as well as organisations around the world, in making our own #climatepledge.
In particular, our #climatepledge supports the inaugural “Buildings Day” at COP21 on 3rd December. Organised through the UN, Buildings Day is designed to help put the buildings and construction sector on a “below 2°C path”. A whole range of commitments are expected to be published, from an unprecedented number of partner organisations who are collaborating for maximum impact.
Hillbreak aims to educate at least 200 people per year between 2015-2020, from global Executives to students and graduates, on the business imperatives of tackling climate change. That’s a minimum of 1,000 people in total.
Our Founders, Jon Lovell & Miles Keeping, commit to providing no less than one day per month of pro-bono time to industry efforts to address climate change and related environmental imperatives. That’s 60 days, or two months, each over the next five years.
