Climate Action

Climate change is threatening humankind and pushing people deeper into poverty.

We only have 9 years for the whole world to urgently and significantly reduce global carbon emissions. To prevent global warming from becoming a global catastrophe, creating human suffering on an unimaginable scale.

It’s not too late if we all take urgent action together.

Greener, Fairer Future Now

While the climate crisis is affecting us all, it’s hitting some communities worse – and it’s the people who’ve done the least to cause it who are suffering the most.

We’re standing with communities as they speak out for their right to a greener, fairer future. And supporting them with the resources they need to survive and thrive.

This is so anyone can access the support needed to recover from extreme weather, such as clean water on tap during a drought, or house insurance to help rebuild after homes are destroyed by floods.

This November, in Glasgow, world changing decisions will be made that have a huge impact on all of us. The UK will be hosting the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) attended by other world leaders and nearly 200 governments.

UK emissions are still well above what is sustainable, and we are among the world's biggest emitters. So, we have one of the biggest parts to play.
