Australia’s Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals has called for “an all-in commitment” to tackling climate change and launched a Declaration of Climate Action at its 2022 Leaders’ Summit in Melbourne.
“If we are to go further and faster on reducing climate-altering emissions, everybody needs to do their bit,” said CEO Melina Morrison. “Our position paper notes that climate change is a first order risk to the Australian environment, society and economy.”
Morrison pointed to the floods which devastated New South Wales this year as “yet one more reminder of what the future holds”, adding: “The world’s best way forward is science-based, urgent and collaborative action, and it needs to be bottom-up as well as top-down.”
