This easy-to-flip-through guide—published by Drawdown Labs—will help the climate-concerned employee assess whether or not their company is taking adequate steps to address the climate crisis, and how they can utilize their power to push their company well beyond ‘net zero’. It can also be used by the general public to be more sophisticated judges of the corporate climate announcements we often hear about.
Throughout, the guide mentions specific job functions (e.g., marketing, human resources, government affairs, etc.) that have enormous untapped potential to drive climate action. As employees read the guide, we also encourage them to also think about the specific solutions they can integrate into their climate work.
This employee-focused guide has two main objectives:
- Democratize climate action so that all employees can contribute. You don’t need to have “sustainability” or “climate” in your job title to take powerful climate action. Every job can be a climate job. This guide helps all employees across all sectors find their inroad.
- Elevate business climate leadership by looking beyond “net zero.” A new drawdown-aligned business framework can help companies leverage their social, political, financial, and employee power in pursuit of a stable climate and just future for all.
